The Gladalan Brown Onion is an abundant open-pollinated variety producing medium sized onions up to around 15cm in diameter, with a mild flavour. Stores well. Suited to warm climates.
Sow seed, approx. 5mm deep, (into trays) in cool areas sow July; in temperate areas sow mid May - August. Germination approx. 7 - 10 days. Let grow to a good size with decent root growth (approx. 12 weeks), transplant out at 15cm diagonal spacing in fertile soil (less than 1cm deep). Keep well watered to establish. Harvest in approx. 110 - 130 days.
Onions have a surprisingly deep root system, so you need to work the soil deep – at least 25cm – to ensure good drainage. Sorting the drainage is important as the soil will end up compacted due to them being in the ground for a long time.
