Description:British breeding brings us this high-quality red onion variety with a more uniform shape, darker red skin and longer storage potential than ‘Red Baron’. An added bonus is its excellent resistance to bolting. ‘Red Herald’ will suit those who like a red onion with a strong distinctive taste.
Sowing Info:Sow seed indoors in individual pots or a seed tray at a depth of 6mm (¼in) using free-draining, seed-sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag at a temperature of 15-20°C (59-68°F) until after germination which usually takes 10-12 days. Once germinated, grow on at 10-15°C (50-59°F) until all risk of frost has passed and plants are large enough to plant outdoors at a distance of 10cm (4in) apart. Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water thoroughly after planting and as bulbs swell.
Growing Info:Alternatively, sow outdoors mid March to mid April thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) and a distance of 30cm (12in) between rows.
