More and more popular for cooking or in salads, you can grow red onions more rapidly with red onion sets. Red onions are the onions with the sweetest taste. Press bulbs in the soil about 10 cm apart. 100 bulbs / pkg
PLANTING TIME: Sow in the spring when the soil is workable, on a firm seedbed. SOIL: Grow them in an open area, on fertile medium to light soil that is well drained. Prepare soil by digging in a good quantity of well-rotted manure. Do not plant in fresh manure. An all-purpose feed may be worked into the seedbed before sowing. They have low nitrogen requirements. SPACING: Press bulbs in the soil about 10 cm apart. GROWING TIPS: Keep site free of weeds. They have fairly small roots and need small quantities of water once well established. Plant in full sun. HARVESTING: Tops will turn brown and wilt. For fresh use, pull or lift as needed. For storage, make sure that the outer skins are thoroughly dry before putting in storage. Handle carefully to prevent storage rot. Store in a dry cool area.
