Good day, can I plant the Australian brown onion throughout the year in South Africa? I want to maintain the monthly supply for my customers.

typically root vegetables such as onions,carrots and beetroot can be grown year round , just ensure they have enough deep soil , and keep an eye on the moisture levels, after the bulbs started forming , and give them ample space between each plant , thinning is an essential function.
