    Well-formed, golden-skinned onions appear in abundance, and mature early in the season. An RHS AGM award-winner, they are strong and easy to grow, and once harvested, the onions store well, so can be enjoyed over a long period.

  • Garden care: Plant onion sets so that the tips are just showing, and then firm the soil around them from mid-February to March, 15cm (6in) apart in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Lift the onions when they are mature (normally in August) and allow them to dry before using.
