ONION CULTURE AND PLANTING ONION SETS

Planting onion sets is a quick and easy way to have fresh onions which can also be used as scallions.  We plant in rows 6 to 12 inches apart and place sets 2 to 3 inches apart.  They can be thinned to about 4 inches apart to raise larger bulbs for storage for later use.  Planting at 2 to 3 inches apart takes about 400 to 600 bulbs per 100 foot row.  (It takes approximately 400 to 600 sets per 100 foot row at 2 to 3 inches spacing.)

PLANTING ONION PLANTS

When planting onion plants we usually plant in rows 6 to 12 inches apart and place plants about 4 inches apart.  You can have fresh green onions in about 3 to 4 weeks or large onion in about 3 to 4 months.  When the taller leaves start to bend over as the onion nears maturity carefully bed all the leaves over to ground level and expose the bulbs and leave in the ground until all leaves turn brown before harvesting.  Place at 4 inches apart, it takes approximately 300 plants per 100 foot row.
