Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
Spring Onion ‘Totem’ produces long, uniform upright stems which do not bulb at the base. This means less waste as thinning is not generally required, plus you benefit from a generous harvest with close, neat rows which can fit into more confined spaces or containers. Very low maintenance and easy to grow, simply sow them directly outside throughout spring and into early summer and they’ll provide a rewarding fresh crop of tasty spring onions with a strong, punchy flavour and crisp bite. This varieties has excellent cold weather tolerance - if sown successively, you can be harvesting these all the way through autumn. Perfect for picking fresh to use as and when needed - great for salads, sandwiches or stir fries. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 5cm (2”).

No thinning is required, stems will increase in size but do not bulb. Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting

Direct sow onions outdoors in spring on any firm, well drained soil in full sun. Sow thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2”) and a distance of 30cm (12”) between rows. 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 onions in raised beds.

Alternatively sow onion seed indoors in module trays at a depth of 1cm (1/2”), using free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 10-15C (50-59F) until after germination which usually takes 10-14 days. Once germinated, grow onions on in cool conditions until all risk of frost has passed and they are large enough to plant outdoors at a distance of 5cm (2”) apart.
