Onion sets are immature onions that are harvested at an early growth stage. When replanted in spring, they develop into fully mature onions by the end of the summer. Plant sets in rows at a distance of 10 to 15 cm (4" to 6") apart with 25 to 38 cm (10" to 15") between each row.

Half a pound of Onion sets will give you about 50, enough for a 25 foot row at 6" spacing.

The following are SPRING sown varieties of Onions, Shallots and Garlic stocked in the Shop for the 2014 season.
