Organic Onion Growing Directions

Growing onions in your Harvest to Home garden is easy. You may harvest the top onion greens throughout the season. Simply grab the green stalks and cut about 25%- 50% of them with a pair of scissors.  Onion bulbs grow slowly (2-4 months) so clip the greens while you wait. You can continue to do this throughout the season until the bulbs are large enough for you to pull the entire plant.

Essential Oil is recommended on the stalks of the onion plant but not necessary. Onions rarely attracts insects, in fact they sometimes deter them.
