    Planting Directions:  Direct sow in spring as early as the ground can be worked and soil temperature  is between 50° and 95°. Plant seed ½” deep. Sow indoors 8 weeks before last frost in spring. Keep soil temperature 50° to 95° and consistently moist for optimum germination. Plant in loose, well drained soil that has been enriched with compost or a general purpose garden fertilizer. Plant seed in a trench and as the onions grow fill in the trench with soil as this is a very tall bunching type onion. When the plants are 2” high, thin 2” to 3” apart. The greens you thin can be used in cooking or salads. Water moderately on a regular schedule. Plant in late summer for an early crop the next spring or summer.
