1) Onions are a wonderful staple crop in our household, and we like to store some of our onion bulbs for 6-8 months over the winter. We eat a lot of them, and we usually plant over 200 onions each year.

Planting And Care

  • Fertilize every few weeks with nitrogen to get big bulbs
  • Cease fertilizing when the onions push the soil away and the bulbing process has started
  • Do not put the soil back around the onions; the bulb needs to emerge above the soil
  • Generally, onions do not need consistent watering if mulch is used
  • About one inch of water per week (including rain water) is sufficient
  • If you want sweeter onions, water more
  • Onions will look healthy even if they are bone dry, be sure to water during drought conditions
  • Make sure soil is well-drained
  • Mulch will help retain moisture
  • Cut or pull any onions that send up flower stalks; this means that the onions have and are done
