Dear team, my Shirley Giant Onions are growing like mad - all my mates are asking how I grow them so big.I told when I received them as plants I followed your instrutions and just sat back and watched them grow. So I gave them your email. Can't wait to taste them. Be in touch again.

Supplied as a packet of approximately 450 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
This variety remains un-excelled and was first grown by Mr Shirley senior more than 50 years ago. Quick and very easy to grow, this reliable variety produces dark green leaves with a mild flavour.
Excellent in salads, for garnishing, or just a few on your plate accompanying cheese!
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).
