Size guide - Tray of 20 Plug Plants 

Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Onion Ailsa Craig – A very reliable plant that produces a mild flavoured large onion.

  • Depending on the weather in your area, onions can be planted straight into the ground, into fertile soil in an open sunny site preferably.
  • Planting closely together will result in smaller sized onions so ideally space them every 10cm or so in rows 25-30cms apart.
  • Onions are shallow rooting so weed regularly so they are not competing for food and water and give an occasional feed. 
  • Harvest the onions when the leaves yellow and collapse which will probably be around late summer/autumn.
  • Ease them out of the ground with a garden fork and lay them in the sun to dry out or use them straight away.  Onions can be stored in a net bag and hung in the shed or garage until you need to use them.
