Planting your Onions
05 May 2016
The large exhibition Onion Bunton's Showstopper, that should have been sowed at Christmas should now be big enough to plant out into their final positions.

Before planting, give the soil a good dressing of Vitax Q4 fertiliser at 2oz per square yard. It's a good idea to plant your large onions 15in (38cm) apart along the row, and space rows 18in (45cm) apart in-between rows.
When planting Onions try to plant so all the leaves run down the row the same way, this will make hoeing in-between plants easier later in the season, and will hopefully eliminate the chance of breaking off any leaves.
Because every leaf you break is a skin you will lose and your onions won't be quite as big.
