Growing recommendations

Seed onions in February or March in flats (densely 30/foot) or in small cells (3-4 per cell). Transplant early in the spring – onion seedling can withstand a light frost. Transplant individual plants every 4” in rows 15” apart. Alternately transplant plugs with three seedling per plug every 6” in rows 15” apart. Harvest after necks soften and greens start to droop. Onions need curing if you want to store them any length of time. Cure them at least one week and store them in dry conditions.
