Onion Sets 'Snowball White'
Onions the easy way!
A mild flavoured onion with a beautiful pale white-yellow bulb, the Snowball variety is ideal for cooking with and perfect for eating fresh. It has been called the ‘best white onion set’ with a mild flavour, and stores well.
Plant in late winter/early spring for harvesting during August-September.
Plant in a well-draining soil, with the tip of the onion set slightly above soil level. Onions prefer full sun and for soil to be kept moist until the set takes hold, after which watering once a week will suit them. Cut back on watering when the tops start dying back to prevent bulbs from rotting.
Once they have finished sprouting the leaves will turn yellow, you can lift them at this point.
Prolonged cold spells may cause the onion to flower prematurely, keep temperatures stable and do not overwater onions to prevent this.
