Onion Hunter River Brown is Mr Fothergill's pick as the best all-round early onion, Hunter River Brown produces a large, globe-shaped onion with a light brown skin. An excellent keeper, ideal for Autumn sowing.
Onions like a fine rich soil and an open sunny position.
Sow thinly, 6mm deep in rows, cover with fine soil or compost and keep moist. Thin seedlings early to 2cm and later to 10cm apart. Allow 30cm between rows. Prepare the soil well by adding organic material and a pre-planting fertiliser. Harvest when the tops dry out and fall over.
