Planting Method: Direct Seed or Transplant
To Direct Sow: Early spring (4-6 weeks before last frost) through early fall, sow every 1/3 inch in 2-inch wide bands. Thin to 1 inch apart if large diameter is desired.
For Transplanting: Sow indoors, 6 weeks before final frost, 2 seeds per cell or soil block.. Heat mats help hasten germination. Water evenly, thin to one per cell. 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. Late spring, transplant 1-2 inches apart, as deep as you can with at least 2 inches remaining above the soil.
Seed Depth: 1/4 inch Days to Germination: 5 at 75°F; 12 at 60°F
Sowing and seedling care: 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. Hill mulch around their stems for even more tender, snowy white scallion delight!
Spacing after thinning/transplanting: 1-2 inches Sun Needs: Full
Days to Harvest: 30 days to baby harvest; 50-60 days to full harvest; can be perennial
Harvest: You can harvest as an annual or grow as perennial — if you leave some to overwinter, they are such a sweet spring treat to harvest as the snows melt.
