Delivery: Mid September to Late December
Save £5 with this great Autumn deal, Onion Shakespeare x75, Shallot Golden Gourmet x20, Garlic Mersley Wight x2, with 3x Onion Nets & a tub of Pre-Planting Fertiliser included.
Onion Shakespeare (75 sets) - is a British bred, autumn planting brown skinned variety producing high yields of good sized bulbs. The excellent skin formation means it shows good storage potential well into the winter months. Plant in October/November for exceptional bolt resistance.
Golden Gourmet Shallot (20 sets) - This is one of the best of the brown-skinned shallots. Producing good fleshy bulbs with a delicious flavour. They are a very good storage variety, keeping well for several months.
Garlic Mersley Wight (20 bulbs - typically 20-25 cloves) - Enjoy the rewarding harvests of full-flavoured large garlics with outstanding vigour. Simply plant them up in free-draining soil 6in (15cm) apart and 1-2in (2-5cm) deep and leave them over winter. Water from April and expect handsome harvests from July. 2 full bulbs give around 20 cloves for planting which produce 20 full bulbs in summer the following year. That works out to be around 25p for every bulb of home-grown and flavoursome garlic.
3x Onion Nets - These onion nets are the ideal size for storing onions, shallots and garlic, keeping them in top condition for months on end. Remember, after you've harvested your bumper crop of home-grown onions, leave them to dry before storing in sacks. Made from strong polypropylene, these handy onion nets are completely reusable and can be used again and again for years!
1x 900g bottle of Onion, Shallot, & Garlic Fertiliser - Concentrated Pre-Planting Garlic Fertiliser specially formulated for garlic and other alliums, this slow release fertiliser is high in trace elements. This ensures strong bulb development and growth, early ripening and maturity, good skin and bulb firmness – as well as great pungency and flavour! Supplied in a handy re-sealable tub with an integral dispenser, simply shake over the ground and rake in prior to planting.
NPK:12:11:18, with trace elements (nitrogen, nitrate, phosphorous, sulphur, copper and calcium).
