Planting Tips for Heirloom Onion:
Onions need a light friable soil to grow successfully. Start in early spring, scatter seeds in tray ¼”- ½” apart in moist soil and put in warm place. Transplant out 8-10 weeks later in final spacing.
Short Day Onions are normally planted in the fall in California unless you are in the Central Valley where you can also plant intermediate day onions as well.
Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture – not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or over-watering and possibly having them rot.
