How to grow Prema Red Onion
- When seeding onions for bulbs, plant them ¼ inch deep during October through December. Place the seeds 1 inch apart. When the plants are about 6 inches high, thin them to one plant every 2 to 3 inches. Eat the extra plants as green onions.
- Onions grow best in full sunlight and well-drained soils.
- Work the garden soil only when it is dry enough not to stick to garden tools. Before seeding or transplanting, work the soil 8 to 10 inches deep.
- Remove all rocks and trash from the soil; then break up the remaining clods and rake the soil smooth.
- Onions are a cool-season crop and can stand temperatures well below freezing. They can be planted from seeds, from small bulbs called sets, or from transplants.
- Seeding cost the least but takes longer before onions are ready. When seeding onions for bulbs, plant them ¼ inch deep during October through December. Place the seeds 1 inch apart. When the plants are about 6 inches high, thin them to one plant every 2 to 3 inches. Eat the extra plants as green onions.
- If you use sets or transplants, plant them ¾ inch deep and 3 inches apart . Do not transplant onions more than 1 inch deep.
- Spread 2 to 3 pounds of a fertilizer such as 10-10-10 over a 100-square-feet of garden area, Measure and spread the fertilizer; then mix it with the top 3 to 4 inches of soil.
- Watering once a week usually is enough in the spring. But you may need to water more often during dry, windy weather. Water onions slowly and deeply to help grow strong, healthy roots.
Care during the season
- Weeds are easy to pull or cut when they are 3 to 4 inches tall. Do not let weeds or grasses grow large because they compete with onions for nutrients.
- If you use a hoe to remove weeds and grass, do not chop too deeply. You may be cutting the onion roots. Pull all weeds by hand when possible.
- When the onion plants have 5 to 6 leaves, apply fertilizer again to help grow larger plants and bigger bulbs. Each leaf forms a ring in the onion bulb. More leaves mean more rings and larger bulbs.
- Use about ½ cup of fertilizer for each 10 feet of onion row. Scatter the fertilizer evenly between the rows. Water the onions after adding the fertilizer.
