This is traditionally the most popular variety of spring onion, and an essential addition to the veg patch. Quick, hardy and easy to grow. Its speed of growth makes it ideal for catch-cropping and year-round cultivation, with its small size meaning it can be easily squeezed into unused corners of the garden.

Spring onion tips: Sow salad onions in drills as close as 10cm apart in well prepared, weed-free soil. Seeds can be 2-3cm apart in the row with no need to thin. For a very early crop, seeds can be started indoors in January.
Salad onions can be sown throughout the growing season. For a continuous supply of pencil-thick onions we recommend sowing every two weeks. They are ready for harvest six weeks after sowing.
