Spring Onion Reddy seeds - Allium cepa - Salad vegetable
Spring Onion Reddy - Allium cepa
Type: Summer salad crop
Site and soil type: Grow in a sunny, sheltered site with fertile, well-drained soil.
When to sow: March to July
A superb variety that produces spring onions with skins of a deep red colour.
Can be used whole in salads or cut finely and used as a garnish. Can also be chopped and used in stir-fries.
Sow the seeds thinly 1 cm deep in rows about 10 cm apart. Keep area weeded and water in dry weather or if soil is very dry.
If space is a problem, spring onions can also be grown in pots. Fill a pot with compost up to about 3 cms from the top. Sprinkle the seeds sparingly over the surface and cover with about 1 to 1.5 cm of compost. Water gently.
Harvest when the bulbs are about 1 cm wide.
Sow seeds at intervals of a couple of weeks apart to ensure a regular supply throughout the summer and into autumn.
