The best spring onion you can grow, with rich-crimson outer skins and round, generous bulbs.
Eat them as spring onions or leave them to bulk up to red onion size. An ideal all rounder. I love them raw or griddled. An excellent companion plant for carrots to avert the carrot root fly.
Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
Be careful not to over-water. It’s also crucial to keep weeds away because like all onions, spring onions hate competition. It’s also advisable to protect the young seedlings from birds, by covering them with horticultural fleece.
