Grow spring onion Lilia as part of your home-growing; not only is Lilia colourful and vibrant with its attractive purple head, it’s really fresh and punchy in salads which you can enjoy in autumn and even into Advent.

Lilia is happy growing in an allotment bed or a raised planter like a VegTrug to cater for your needs and space as a home-grower. Enjoy the clean and crisp taste of Lilia when you chop or slice it into a leafy salad or grow it into winter to turn into a bulb vegetable which stores well somewhere cool.

How to plant:

Get your soil ready now by digging over and raking the area. At planting time space your young plants around 15cm (6in) apart. Plant them in a multi-purpose compost and treat to a feed of Growmore as you notice the young seedlings turning into established plants, at around 20cm (8in) in height.

Water your plants well; twice to three times a day if it a warm September and October.

Useful tip:

Keep on top of weeding around your spring onion Lilia plants as they develop over the autumn so your plants need not compete with water, space and nutrients. Use a hand hoe in containers or larger hoe if growing garlic directly in the beds.
