When to Sow Organic Red Tide Onions
February to April

Plant Out
April to May

Where to Sow 
Early sowing can be made under glass in pots or seed trays, sow seed on the surface of seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling or vermiculite or compost, and place at a temperature of 14C. Outdoor sowings can be made in April, sow seed thinly in shallow drills 1.5cm (1/2in) deep, with rows spaced 30cm (12in) apart.                                                   

What to do Next  
Greenhouse sown seedlings can be pricked out into individual pots or modular trays. Move plants to a cold frame in April to harden off before planting outside 15-20cm (6-8in) apart. Outdoor sowings can be thinned gradually until  plants are 15-20cm (6-8in) apart, then leave to mature as smaller bulbs for storing.  

Handy Tip 
Very attractive for use raw in salads. Slice across the bulbs to produce tasty red and white rings.
