Hello everyone just need a little help. Had my little delivery of red onions today.bit have no idea when to plant them there are no labels of instructions other could anyone help thanks again
Thank you Paula's I will try that

I plant onion sets mid March to mid April, depending on the weather. I find Sturon keeps until June and Red Baron until April the following year. I start harvesting in July, so I rarely buy onions. But Summer here in France is hotter than in England.


I always start all onion sets off in modules in my unheated greenhouse and plant them out when roots have developed.  As well as ensuring a good crop, it stops the birds from pulling them out.  Never had a bad crop since I started doing that.


Thanks for that bob the gardener I will try that
