Growing onions At Home
I love having fresh green onions and fresh green garlic at all times during spring! They’re super delicious in salads, rice-based dishes, chicken and fish recipes and soups.
Considering what the world is going through currently, I think more and more of us are starting to growing fresh produce at home. Whether that’s a backyard or a large pot by the window – today we’ll learn how to turn a bulb of onions into a bunch of scallions.
How To Grow Onions From Bulbs At HOME
Step By Step
- Fill a pot to 2/3 with compost or soil suitable for growing green onions.
- Plant small onion bulbs about 2/3 inch (2 cm) into the soil.
- Make sure to space out your onion bulbs, so that they have room to grow. Leave about 1-2 inches or 3-5 cm distance between the onion bulbs.
- Cover the onion bulbs with soil, then water to cover the soil everywhere.
- Grow your onions at mild temperature – between 50-77F or 10-25C in a sunny spot at home. Keep in mind to keep the soil moist most of the time to speed up and enhance the growing process.
- Harvest your scallions at max 10 inches or 25 cm tall.
