Select a sunny location

Mark rows at one foot apart
Plant onion sets three inches apart and about one inch deep
When the tops fall over, pull onions and allow to dry on top of the soil for several days
Remove from garden and store in a cool, dry place to prevent rot

Plant throughout the spring at two-week intervals
Mark rows one foot apart
Plant onion sets 2-4 inches deep with the bulbs nearly touching (the deeper you plant, the more white portion will be produced)
Harvest when tops are about 10 inches tall – usually 4-6 weeks after planting
Refrigerate cleaned green onions in a glass of water to keep fresh and flavorful.
