In My Seedbox for 2021 - Onion Sets

Not technically in my seed box, but on order from Suttons as new varieties to them for 2021 and due for despatch after Christmas on the 5th & 11th of January 2021 are:-

Suttons Onion Sets - Red Baron 

Glossy, deep red skins and a strong flavour make Red Baron a popular gardeners choice, as they are normally uniform, bulbous and coppery. Hardy when planted in early spring, Red Baron have a strong pungent home-grown flavour and I have grown these in the past from seed.

Plant outdoors in January, due for dispatch from Suttons during the first week of January they will go into the ground as soon as I can after receipt.  They store well from September until the following April, if they last that long as my daughter goes through onions at an alarming rate.

Sold by weight of 250g for £4.29 it will be interesting to see just how many sets are in the pack when it arrives

Suttons Onion Sets - Pink Panther


A traditional French market variety a truly great looking onion variety. Producing amazing rosy coloured onions that look as good as they taste. With a sweet, almost fruity taste, accompanied by a slight sharpness. These onions will certainly enhance any meal they are added to. Once cooked the Onion Sets - Pink Panther become very tender and the sharpness gives way to a much sweeter taste!


Sold by weight of 250g for £3.99 it will be interesting to see just how many sets are in the pack when it arrives 

Looking after your onions

Onions like a sunny, sheltered site in well-drained soil. Plant Onion Sets - Pink Panther 10cm apart in rows 30cm apart. Gently push the Onion Sets - Pink Panther into soft, well-worked soil so that the tip is just showing, and firm the soil around them.
