Excellent cropping onion

This heavy cropping and good keeping variety produces large, pleasantly flavoured globe-shaped bulbs. Maturing time approximately 24 weeks from sowing.

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 the plants out finally to 10-15cm (4-6") apart. For exhibition onions, sow under glass December-January, transplant the seedlings into boxes or pots and gradually harden off for planting out in April. Row 6m (20').
