Spring Onion

Sds/g: 250-350                                    Feed Requirements: Moderate                         Usual Seed Life: 1-3 years

 

Cultural Notes:

  • We love spring onions as they are relatively fast to grow (compared to onions and leeks), they are available all year round and the whole plant can be used raw or cooked to give a great oniony flavour.

Problems:

  • Ensure that you do not plant rows any closer than 45 cm to allow for sufficient air flow through winter. This will help with winter rusts, mildews and moulds.

Harvest:

  • Eat your thinnings, which allows the remaining plants to grow bigger. If you have some clay in your soil loosen under the plants with a fork before pulling them out as you may leave the base in the soil. Great chopped fine in salads and sandwiches.

Spring onions are perfect in salads and stir-fries, but they also give flavour and colour to any dish. This variety has little swelling at the bulb, forms long white stalks so most of the onion can be used. Very hardy and easily grown in fertile, limy soils in full sun. 300 seeds.
