Plant Care

Watering

Wet the seed starting mix. Push your finger into the soil to your first knuckle and make sure it is damp. Excess water should drain through.

Light

Indirect sunlight, 6 to 8 hours

Temperature

18°C to 26°C

Fertilizer

Provide fertilizer once the first true leaves emerge. The first set of leaves that appear are known as the seed leaves. The second set of leaves are the first ‘true leaves,’ and a sign that your plant is getting mature and ready for serious growth. Dilute a balanced fertilizer to ¼ the strength recommended. Fertilize once in 2 weeks.

Product Bio

Onion seed starting is easy. Onions grow best in fertile, well-draining soil. This should also be worked with organic matter, such as compost. Onion seeds can be planted directly in the garden bed. However, when growing onion seed, some people prefer to start them indoors. This can be done in late autumn.

The best time for planting onion seeds outdoors is in spring, as soon as the soil can be worked in your area. Place them about an inch (2.5 cm.) deep in the soil and approximately half an inch or more apart. If planting rows, space them at least one and half to two feet (.45 to .61 m.) apart. When it comes to onion seed germination, temperature plays an active role. While typically germination occurs within 7-10 days, soil temperature affects this process. For instance, the cooler the soil temperature, the longer it will take for onion seeds to germinate – up to two weeks. Warm soil temperatures, on the other hand, can trigger onion seed germination in as little as four days.

Once seedlings have sufficient leaf growth, thin them down to around 3-4 inches (7.6 to 10 cm.) apart. Transplant onion seedlings that were started indoors about 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost or freeze date, provided the ground is not frozen. Onion plants have shallow roots and require frequent irrigation throughout the growing season. However, once the tops begin to lay over, usually by late summer, watering should be stopped. At this point, onions can be lifted. Growing onion seed plants is an easy, inexpensive way to keep an unlimited amount of onions on hand just when you need them.
