    Onion sets are the easiest way to grow onions in the garden. Planted in March or April, they will mature faster than onions grown from seed. 'Sturon' is a flavourful variety which produces round, straw-coloured onions that mature in August.

  • Garden care: Plant onion sets so that the tips are just showing and firm the soil around them from mid-March to mid-April, 15cm (6in) apart in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Lift the onions when they are mature and allow them to dry before using. Store the fully ripened, sound bulbs in nets or trays and you can use them throughout the autumn and winter.
