The Little Veggie Patch Co. White Onion 'Gladalan'
Gladalan White produces medium to large sized white bulbs. Can be grown as an autumn or spring crop in the more temperate parts of the country. Sweet and mild, they are great cooked or roasted, or even better raw in salads and sandwiches.
When to Plant
Zone 1: February–May + September - November
Zone 2: March–June + September - November
Zone 3: March–September
Zone 4: March–June

Soil pH Level 6.5
Position Full sun, in a spot that follows leafy green crops such as lettuce or cabbage.
How to Plant Sow the seeds directly into the veggie patch in early autumn if conditions are not too warm, otherwise propagate in a mini greenhouse and then transplant once conditions become more mild
