200g of onion sets (approximately 50 sets) will plant a row of about 5m (16'). Full growing instructions included.
Heat treatment starts in November depending on the size of the bulb. During the heat treatment, the onion sets are gradually heated up over 12 days from the 3-5°C storage temperature to 30-32°C and, depending on size, are kept at this temperature for 30-60 days (during which time they are heated up to 32-35°C for 10 days) and then gradually cooled to 10-14°C for planting in April/May. So whilst they are a little more expensive, you can be more confident of harvesting onions you can be proud of!
