Sowing and seedling care: Broadcast in flats 1/4 inch apart. Heat mats help hasten germination. Water evenly & clip tops once 5” tall (enjoy like chives). Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings. Onions are hungry! There is a direct relationship between the quantity & quality of nutrients available and the quality and quantity of onions you’ll harvest. We foliar feed with dilute fish & kelp emulsion every 2 to 3 weeks until the summer solstice, when onions begin to transition to dormancy.
