How to grow spring onion in a garden
- Choose a spot in the garden that receives full sun. Enrich the soil with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. If the soil is clay based, add gypsum and fork in well.
- Make furrow about 6 mm deep and sprinkle the seeds over the furrow. To get a continuous crop, sow the seeds every week for a few weeks.
- Cover seeds lightly with soil. To retain moisture, mulch the sown area. Water in to keep the soil moist.
- Once they have sprouted (about 10 to 14 days) you can thin them such that plant space is about 5 cm apart and space between rows is 15 cm.
- Feed every few weeks with Yates Thrive Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food.
- Harvest them after 8 to 10 weeks by pulling out the entire plant by holding it at the base of the stem near the ground.
