Onion Growing Tips, Tricks, and Tidbits

You can start many onion seedlings in a single open pot. They do not need to be potted up.

Trimming onions put more energy into the roots and results in bigger bulbs.

All allium transplants will benefit from trimming--including onions, leeks, and shallots.

Trim onions when they are about 6 inches tall or when they are bending and getting tangled.

If you have brown, dead tips on your onions, trim the dead pieces off first.

Cut the onion tops off at about 1 ½ to 2 inches high.
