Spring Onion – Purplette
This is an early bulbing, glossy purple-red skinned salad onion when small. The colour changes to lovely pastel pink when larger bulbs are pickled or cooked.
Sow seed thinly direct outside or in containers, 13mm deep. No thinning should be necessary. It is ideal for sowing thinly in containers or window boxes. Keep well watered during dry weather.
