250g "Sturon" Onion Sets

The allium cepa "Sturon" onion is an excellent maincrop variety that produces medium-sized, slightly flat to rounded onions. These onions have a smooth, light brown skin with yellow flesh on the inside that can be used for salads and in cooking. It is a dual purpose plant that can be planted close together for green bunching onions, or spaced further apart for larger storage onions. The Sturon has good resistance to bolting, and their thin necks mean they can be stored well into winter.

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.
