ONION SEEDS Approximately 8,000 seeds per oz.
PLANTING: Sow seeds thinly in seed flats during February or March. Place seeds 1/4″ deep in a good soil substitute, like
Berger BM-2. Germinate at 56F in strong natural or artificial light. After emergence, trim top to 4″ as needed as plants become
established. Transplant outdoors in 6″ spacings. Seeds may also be started outdoors in late spring. HINT: Start
your own onion sets by spacing seeds 3/4″ apart in a block format outdoors. Harvest & store like onion bulbs.
HARVEST: For fresh spring onions, pull and use when desired size is reached. For onion bulbs, when tops begin to fall over
& bulb has developed skins, pull and cure for at least a week in sunlight. When dry, store in dark, cool place. Do not freeze.
You will need 1 oz of seed per 100′ row or 4 lbs per acre. PKT size 1/8 oz.
