Suttons - Onion Sets Arrive

Pink Panther sets arrived on the 12th January and the Red Baron sets arrived on the 18th and a second pack on the 19th January.  

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.

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!

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.
