£1.25 / pack(s)

Red Tide F1 is a lovely onion, the best red we have trialled for a long time.  Bright bold colour, hits all the right notes for flavour, use in salads or for cooking.  And this variety stores really well too


SOW: in February and March you will need to be able to keep the temperature at 14°C, using pots or seed trays sow seed on the surface and lightly cover with a sprinkling or vermiculite or compost.  Use cloches to warm the soil & in late March/April you can sow directly in shallow drills (seed depth now 15mm) with rows spaced 30cm apart


GROW: early seedlings are pricked out into individual pots and moved to a cold frame in April to harden off before planting outside 15cm apart. Your later sowings need thinning until 15cm apart. 


EAT: just lift at the size you want to use fresh.  For storage wait until the tops bend over naturally, gently ease the bulbs up and let dry for about 10 days before storing
