Soil: 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.
Easy to Grow: 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.
Planting Instructions: Plant your Super Sweet Onion Bulbs in the spring (as early as you can work the soil). 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, sidedress with additional fertilizer. Place the fertilizer in a narrow band about 2 to 3 inches from the base of the onion plants.
When to Plant Outdoors: Plant in the spring, after the ground warms to about 50º F.
