Onion Sets – Sturon

£0.55 Per 100g

Onion Sets – Sturon is a flavourful variety that produces excellent globe-shaped, straw-coloured onions with light golden skin and delightfully flavoured,  crisp flesh.

Sturon is a good choice due to its wonderful rich flavour, its high yield, and is well-suited to storing for longer periods.

Plant in Spring from March to April, and they will be ready to harvest in July, August and September.

Plant next to potted Mint to deter Onion Fly.


Onions love a sunny and open site in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure.

If your soil is heavy and tends to remain overly wet, grow onions in raised beds or on mounds to improve drainage.

Plant onion sets 10cm (4in) apart in rows 30cm (12in) apart from mid-March to mid-April.

Gently push the sets into soft, well-worked soil so that the tip is just showing, and firm the soil around them. Ensure regular light watering in extended dry periods.

If growing from seed, sow 13mm (1/2in) deep in rows 20cm (8in) apart from late February through to early April.

Thin by removing weaker seedlings, first to 5cm (2in) apart and then later to 10cm (4in) apart.
