Onion Rumba (75 pre-planting sets/250g)
Grow onion Rumba; an impressive main crop variety that is especially bred to grow in the UK. Rumba gives you large, uniform, round onions with a sweet flavour, making Rumba ideal for eating uncooked in salads as well as cooking.
Onion Fen Early (75 pre planting sets/250g)
A superb and handsome chestnut-skin onion - one of the earliest crops from a spring planting. Fen Early keeps much better than other early types too so be sure to store them somewhere cool and ventilated until you need them.
Onion New Fen Globe (75 pre planting sets/250g)
For onions with impressive size reaching up to 0.5kg (1lb) in weight and making an excellent showbench specimen for growing champion-sized onions. With extra-long storage capacity.
Plant your onions in free-draining soil in early March, (don't worry about them bolting- we heat-treat your bulbs to prevent this from happening) allowing the roots to establish well while there is still plenty of moisture in the soil. This gives them a head-start and steels them against summer drought should it arise.
