Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow seeds indoors in flats in early spring or seed outdoors as soon as soil is workable. Cover seeds with 1/4 inch fine soil.

SPACING: Leave 12 to 15 inches between rows or space 6 inches apart in all directions for intensified gardening.

THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: When plants are 2 to 4 inches tall, thin or transplant to 5 or 6 inches apart outdoors.

GERMINATION: Approximately 10 to 14 days, depending upon soil and weather. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

A sunny location with well drained, well-fertilized, moderately moist soil assures a successful crop. At maturity, bend over tops to hasten ripening before harvest. Let young onions grow and use for scallions, thinning until final spacing is reached.
