Onions are one of our most invaluable vegetables and also one of civilisation's oldest medicines. They can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and are anti-asthmatic, antibacterial and antiseptic. This triple pack contains a 250g pack of the following three varieties:

Red Arrow - The Onion Sets - Red Arrow is a perfectly good onion variety. With a mild taste, they are fantastic to add to your meals and salads. The Onion Sets - Red Arrow can be planted earlier than most other onion varieties meaning you can enjoy these amazing onions early!

Sturon - The Onion - Sturton is a well known onion variety, renowned for its flavour. The Sturton onion set produces round, straw coloured onions that are plump and medium in size. Perfect for any meal you wish to add them to. The onion - Sturton will keep well through the winter due to its thin neck, meaning it will remain in great condition right through until February/ March time.

French Pink - traditional rosy-coloured French market variety. It has a fruity and sweet taste, with a slight sharpness. After cooking its texture becomes tender and the sharpness gives way to a sweet taste. Stores very well.

Growing Information

Onions like a sunny, sheltered site in well-drained soil. Plant onions sets 10cm apart in rows 30cm apart from October to mid-April (dependant on variety). Gently push the sets into soft, well-worked soil so that the tip is just showing, and firm the soil around them. 

Water if the weather is dry and give an occasional feed with a general liquid fertiliser. A light feed of high potassium fertiliser in June will help ripen the bulbs ready for storage. Stop watering and feeding once your onions have begun to gain some colour on the top, and remove any mulch or soil to expose the bulb to the sun.

Onions can be harvested when the foliage turns yellow and starts to topple over. Leave for two to three weeks and then carefully lift with a garden fork. If you wish to store onions they must be firm, disease-free and then dried for two to three weeks, either laid out in the sun or in a shed if the weather is wet.
