I have spent today planting onion sets. You can grow your own onions from either sets, which are tiny little onions or from seeds. The sets grow over the spring and summer and can be dried and harvested in late summer. I prepared the bed with well rotted manure and pushed them gently into the ground. Plant them 5cm to 10 cm apart and make sure there is about 25cm between the rows. You have to be vigilant with weeding, use a sharp hoe inbetween the rows. Remove any flowers as soon as you see them. Our seed grown onions are still in the polytunnel. Some say seed grown onions are not as prone to bolting (that is when the flowers start appearing). I will let you know how they compare!! 🌱😀🍴#healthandwellbeing

P.s I forgot to say, I am fleecing these sets to keep the birds off them and to help them settle in and put roots down.
