Leek Flextan is an excellent variety for "Baby Leeks" which provide a mild-tasting alternative to spring onions - sow the seeds direct in their main growing positions in the spring (there's no need to thin or transplant them) and harvest the leeks through the summer. However this early variety is comparable to Goliath if left to mature to full size. It has a long shaft and erect leaves, with some rust resistance.

Onion Ailsa Craig Prizewinner

Globe Straw Onion Aprx 250 seeds
I have been growing onions from seed for many years, as the results are far superior to sets, both in size and quality, with little or no running to seed. Onion Ailsa Craig is a large onion with a good flavour and for us keeps until early spring when strung up in bunches in our kitchen. Sow in Jan/Dec in heat and grow on in small pots before planting out in early April for the best results.
