Cultivation advice Onion – ELISTA

  • Best direct sown outdoors from late March to April when the soil has started warming in full sun on firm, well drained ground.  Avoid very wet or cold ground.
  • Well rotted organic matter can be incorporated onto the sowing area the month prior.
  • Sow thinly to avoid thinning at a depth of 6-8 mm on a fine tilled soil with around 30 cm (12″) between rows.
  • Thin excess seedlings to around 4-5 cm between plants.
  • Protect the young seedlings with netting from birds during spring.
