Wintering Onions

Worcester, United Kingdom Gb

Is it posible to plant onion sets that will winter well and produce early next year ? I read somewhere in the past that Japanese onion sets will do this,but where could I find them please ?.



Hi JustVera. I planted some overwintering onions recently. They were called Senshyu Yellow and I picked them up from my local garden centre. I don't know if they're Japanese, but the name sounds it.

I planted them about a month ago, and just checked the pack; they say to plant in autumn so you might still have time. The garden centre had loads of bulbs for over winter so maybe try your local one.

Thank you Peter for your help. I will dash to our local garden center and if successful will plant them today.
