Planting Timelines

    - Fill pots or cell trays with compost and press down to firm the soil
    - Sow between 4-8 seeds per pot or cell
    - For outdoor direct-to-soil sowing, create drills 1cm deep and sow the seeds thinly in 4cm rows (seedlings will need thinned out once germinated into 4 inch separation)
    - Cover over with 1cm of compost, pat down and water
    - For indoor sowing: Transplant the seedlings to soil outside approx 4inches apart whilst the plants are still small to avoid disturbing the roots
    - Onion sets can also be planted for convenience in mid-Spring (plant direct to soil with just the tips poking out)
    - Onions are ready for harvest when the bulbs are bulging out of the soil and all of the leaves have bent down to the ground.
    - Leave harvest to air out and dry before use.
