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. 'Stuttgarter Giant' is an old favourite with characteristically firm semi-flat onions that store very well.

  • Garden care: Plant onion sets 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.
