Suttons have a comprehensive collection of onion seed varieties allowing for pretty much all year round growing in their different forms. Try Ishikura’ a bunching bountiful spring onion, for a decent Shallot one choice is the banana Shallot ‘Zebrune’ & for a mildew-resistant seed that is flavoursome try ‘Santero’.

How To Harvest Onions?

Onions are often bountiful crops and can be planted close together. Let them dry out in the sun for 2-3 weeks and then transfer them to storage.
