Onion, Shallot & Garlic Sets


In this range you'll find spring-planting, autumn-planting and heat-treated varieties. Spring-planting varieties will give you a crop during June and July and autumn-planting varieties will be ready a few weeks earlier. Spring is such a busy time and planting onions and garlic in the autumn to overwinter gives you one less job to in spring! Heat-treated onions are less likely to bolt (run to seed) on planting, which occurs particularly in red varieties.

Shallot 'Hative de Niort' (Autumn Planting)

Allium cepa (Aggregatum Group)

Autumn planting.

Shallot Hative de Niort is the exhibitors favourite but also has superb taste for a wide range of culinary dishes. The brown skinned bulbs have that classic elongated pear shape with excellent uniformity. Plant from late October through to late February, if your soil conditions are likely to be very wet or in an exposed site, then plant the individual bulbs into 75mm ( 3in) pots of compost in your unheated greenhouse or a coldframe to plant out once soil conditions are favourable.
