Sowing Months Harvest Months
Sow from March when the soil is warm. Or sow in September to overwinter and harvest in spring. For a continuous crop of spring onions throughout summer, sow every 3 weeks.
1. Prepare soil well by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
2. Make 1cm (1/2in) shallow channels (drills) in the soil spaced 30cm (12in) apart.
3. Separate seed tapes at the perforation and if necessary cut to desired length.
4. Water the open drill so that the seed tape sticks to the soil well.
5. Place the seed tape in the seed drill, along each row.
6. Cover the seed tapes and gently firm the soil down using the back of a rake.
7. Water regularly and keep moist but not over wet.
8. Keep the area weed free to allow the onions to develop without competition.
9. Spring onions are ready to eat once they reach around 15cm (6in) high and about 0.5cm (1/4in) thick.
