WHEN TO SOW
February to April
Where to Sow
Early sowing can be made under glass in pots or seed trays, sow seed on the surface of seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost, and place at a temperature of 14°C. Outdoor sowings can be made in April, sow seed thinly in shallow drills 1.5cm (1/2in) deep, with rows spaced 30cm (12in) apart.
What to do next
Greenhouse sown seedlings can be pricked out into individual pots or modular trays. Move plants to a cold frame in April to harden off before planting outside 15-20cm (6-8in) apart. Outdoor sowings can be thinned gradually until plants are 15-20cm (6-8in) apart, then leave to mature as smaller bulbs for storing.
August to September
Very attractive for use raw in salads. Slice across the bulbs to produce lovely red and white rings.
