As February rolls around, it’s time to put your green thumb to work and start planning your garden for the upcoming season. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or a novice, there are many options available for what you can sow and grow in your garden in February.
Onions are a kitchen staple and are both undemanding and easy to grow. You can grow onions from seed or by planting sets (immature small onion bulbs) for convenience most choose to plant onion sets. There is a huge variety to choose from, yellow onions are most widely used and we recommend ‘Sturron’ for its high yield, strong flavour and tends to store well. Red Onions tend to be sweeter and are good for salads, we recommend ‘Hyred’ or ‘Red Baron’.
