Onion 'Ramrod' / Winter Hardy Salad Onion / Seeds

A popular British-bred winter hardy salad onion.  Onion ‘Ramrod’ plants have long white stems and green tops and a lovely mild and sweet taste.   They deliver both summer and spring crops, and are good value for the effort involved.  The plants can be grown directly in the ground and also in trays, as deep soil is not required.


Onion ‘Ramrod’ grows best in rich well drained soil, with a regular supply of water.


Pack of 3g (approx 900) seeds.  Sow directly in the soil outside in spring or autumn.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the seed packet.

Sow

For summer harvest: Sow seeds directly in the soil from February to June 1cm deep in rows 15-25m apart.  Thin to 2-5cm apart.  Keep moist and germination takes 2-4 weeks.  Regular water is needed to do well.  Sow every 3 weeks for a continuous harvest.  For spring harvest: Sow as above in July to September for a spring harvest.

Grow & Harvest

Harvest spring-sown salad onions 3-4 months from sowing, generally July to September, while the leaves are still green and upright.  Harvest the autumn sown salad onions in the spring.  Autumn sown salad onions have bigger, stronger tasting bulbs.
