1. Onions can take several months to mature from seed so it is better to start indoors early in the year then set out or they may be grown indoors in containers for year round production
2. Plant the seeds 1/4" deep in flats or pots 2-3 months before the last frost date
3. Keep soil moist and at room temperature
4. When tops begin to bend over trim them down to about 3" for root growth
5. Four weeks before the last frost or when the SOIL temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F, transplant the seedlings 3" apart in rows 12" apart
6. For direct sowing outdoors, sow four-five seeds per inch 1/4" deep in rich composted soil with full sun
7. Use as a companion plant with cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes and keep moist
Plant Care: For the biggest yields grow plants in raised composted beds.
