Dig and manure the soil in autumn or early winter. Give the ground a light dressing of lime early in February and a week before sowings. For use from September onwards sow seed March-April in drills 23cm (9") apart. Thin plants out finally to 10-15cm (4-6") apart. For exhibition onions, sow under glass December-January, transplant seedlings into boxes or pots and harden off for planting out in April. Row 6m (20'). 'Triple pack' row 18m (60') except where stated.

One of civilisations oldest medicines. Anti-asthmatic, anti-bacterial, antiseptic. Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
When leaves turn yellow in late summer, partially ease the bulbs out of the soil with a fork - this speeds the ripening process before harvesting later.
