Hi All,

Just wondering what's the best onions sets to plant now that would be ready to pull up by march or april at the latest?

Also any other veg that could be done in the same time scale, carrots, cabbage etc would be appriciated.... garden is starting to get large bare patchs as i use up the stuff thats ready now.

Thanks

I think the lack of response may tell its own story? I think you'll find you're a couple of months too early, both in sowing and cropping expectations.

Whether or not you buy from them is up to you but the Dobies web site contains useful information on all such issues under the individual type and will probably help you.

One notable sucess I've had for the last two years is Hi-Red, both for flavour and yield if that's any help.

radar onion sets are available from fruit hill farm they are planted soon and will be ready in may-June but if you have a poly tunnel they will crop earlier.
spring cabbage can be planted now, oriental greens, winter lettuce ,carrots can be sown outdoors if you give them a sheltered area.

spring hero and Celtic are cabbage varieties than can be sown now

lettuce winter gem and winter density are lettuce varieties to sow now

carrot autumn king is the carrot variety to sow now

i hope this helps
regards
nemo
