Planting & Care
Soil and Water: Onions prefer loose, fertile, friable, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They do best in soils with a pH of 6.0 -7.0. Their shallow root system is sensitive to fluctuations in water. Mulch to conserve water and control weeds.
Planting and Growing: Sow seeds indoors in flats in early spring or sow seed outdoors as soon as the soil is workable. Cut off seed heads as they form.
Harvesting & Storage: When mature, bend the tops, expose the bulb and let it stay in the ground until the leaves turn brown. Lift bulbs from the soil, braid tops, and hang outside, in the shade, to dry for at least 7 days. Store in ventilated, cool, dry area.
