BUYERS NOTES

A splendid exhibition variety of golden merit producing large globe shaped onions with a rich, golden straw coloured skin. As well as being a super show variety, Onion Ailsa Craig is also one of the best varieties for general cultivation producing large onions with an excellent mild flavour. Onion Ailsa Craig can also be autumn sown.

Sowing Information:

Sow seeds during mid-late winter in a good seed compost, just covering the seeds with compost. Germination takes 14-21 days at 19-21C (65-70F). Higher temperatures may prevent germination.

Growing Information:

Transplant seedlings when 36mm (1¬Ωin) high into 9cm (3¬Ωin) pots. Making sure the tiny bulb is not covered. When well rooted move to a cold frame and plant out in early spring at 38cm (15in) apart in a sunny spot in a rich fertile soil.

Aftercare Information:

Keep the soil moist during dry spells. As the leaves start to yellow bend over the tops, leave 14 days then lift and store when thoroughly ripened.
