Outdoors, March-July, simply make a 'drill' where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-dug, fertile soil. For ease, secure one end of the tape with a large stone or cane, roll out the tape into the drill and gently pull tight to straighten. Cover tape with fine soil. Allow 15cm (6") between rows. Keep moist. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. No thinning is necessary. Keep well watered in dry spells. Sowing the individual tapes at three to four-week intervals will ensure a continuous supply. Harvesting: Harvest alternate onions, leaving other roots to develop. For sweet 'baby' onions, lift when the size of a pencil.
Make the most of your space by sowing between rows of slower growing vegetables.
