Sow liberally but not too thickly, into finely raked, firmed, moist soil or compost in containers, beds or borders at a depth of 1.3cm (½") in rows 15cm (6") apart. No thinning is necessary. Grows best in well-prepared soil manured the previous autumn or a quality compost if grown in containers. Water freely during periods of dry weather. Sow a pinch of seed fortnightly so that small tasty salad onions are always available for the salad bowl.

Sow seeds more densely for smaller bulbs, or sparingly for larger bulbs to store
