The weather is starting to warm up this March and as we get into early spring, there are lots of jobs to do in your garden. Spring is the start of the gardening season and is the time to get started in your garden and work hard to create a beautiful space in your home this year.
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’.
