Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Plant your Super Sweet Onion Bulbs in the spring (as early as you can work the soil). Plant when the soil is workable. 1. Push the sets 1-2" into the soil at 4" intervals for dry onions. 2. Cover with 1/2" of dirt. 3. Water immediately. Plant the bulbs in well-drained, well-cultivated soil. Plant onions bulbs 4" apart in the row for a 3-5" onion. Gardeners should plant as early as possible (frost will not hurt the bulbs). Four to five weeks after planting, side-dress with additional fertilizer. Place the fertilizer in a narrow band about 2 to 3 inches from the base of the onion plants. You can add manure or organic compost to the soil several weeks before planting. Soil should be tamped down firm before planting. Onions will grow in most types of soil. Onions prefer a slightly acidic soil with a pH of 5.5 - 6.5 for optimal growing. Ensure that the soil is well drained.
