Description

Spring Planting.

Growing your own onions couldn’t be easier with Onion ‘Centurion’. Planting spring onion sets is quick and the aftercare is minimal. Just regularly weed between the rows ensuring that you don’t knock or bruise the bulbs. Onion ‘Centurion’ is the deserved winner of an RHS AGM award displaying good vigour and high yields. Begin harvesting golden-skinned onions from June. Allow them to dry thoroughly and ‘Centurion’ will reliably store for many months. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6"). Delivery Sept-Nov

Companion planting: Try growing onions with mint to confuse and deter onion fly.

How to Grow
Plant onion sets in rows in any firm, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the planting area several weeks in advance by incorporating some well rotted garden compost to improve drainage and soil fertility. Avoid planting onions on freshly manured soil. On particularly wet ground, try growing onion sets in raised beds. When growing onions from sets, plant the bulbs so that the tip of bulb is just protruding through the soil surface. Leave a space of 10cm (4") between each bulb, and 30cm (12") between each row.
More Info
Onion sets are undemanding and require only occasional watering during particularly dry periods. However, rows should be weeded regularly. Harvest onions in late June and July, a week or two after the leaves begin to turn yellow. Choose a dry day to loosen them from the ground with a fork. Leave them on the soil surface for a day or two until they have fully dried in the sun. Once dry, remove the top foliage and store them in a well ventilated, dry position. Bulbs can be stored for several months.
