Description: Originally from Puss Chadwick of Paparoa, Richard Watson has been selecting his tree onions for large bulbs and bulbils for a number of years and has a very special line of Tree Onions as a result. Plant one bulb or bulbil, around the shortest day and harvest a clump of bulbs around the longest, depending on where you live. These onions string very well and keep well.

Planting Instructions: Onions do best in light soils with good drainage and need a sunny position. Enrich soil with well rotted manure, compost, lime and Nature’s Garden prior to planting. Plant bulb just below the soil from May to July at 17cm diagonal spacings. They benefit from a weed suppressant mulch.
