Onions are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: onions are fully hardy and are well-suited to the UK's climate.
  • Planting In Pots: only suitable for 25cm (10in) deep containers.
  • Position: plant in full sun for best results.
  • Soil Types: onions can be planted in any type of soil.

Soil Preparation: improve the soil condition with garden compost or well-rotted manure two weeks prior to planting; freshly manured soil can lead to rot.

Planting Distance: plant onion sets 5-10cm (2-4in) apart 2cm (1in) deep so the tip is showing, in rows 25-30cm (10-12in) apart

Pest Control: ensure good soil sterilization, rotational practices, and crop nutrition to reduce risk of pests.

Watering Requirements: water regularly, particularly during dry spells.
