Soil and Water: Onions prefer loose, fertile, friable, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. Their shallow root system is sensitive to fluctuations in water. Mulch to conserve water and control weeds.
Planting and Growing: Sow seed in Spring, or plant in fall to overwinter in the north. Bunching onions are hardy and survive winter temperatures as low as -30F. If wintered over, divide clumps and spread out in spring. These hardy onions are slow-to-bolt and are PR, thrip, and smut resistant. Bunching onions go to seed each season, so they will reseed year after year if you keep the weeds out.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest bunching onions as soon as they're large enough to eat.
