How To Grow Red Onions

I do not think it is humanly possible to count all the different onion varieties on one hand. In our garden we have been growing walking onions, shallots and the more popular white onions. I was thinking of adding yet another one, hence I looked up how to grow red onions on the internet.

I understand that they tend to be a little more frost tolerant than the others. If you are into companion gardening like yours truly, you can match them up with your carrots, swiss chard, beets as well as cabbage. Did you know that onions are affected by the length of the day? Neither did I.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • red onion seeds or bulbs
  • compost
  • manure
  • organic fertilizer

These onions do well in well drained soil that has been prepped with compost and fertilizer too. You can grow them from seed, bulbs or seedlings. Plant in rows spaced about 6 to 7 inches apart. In row spacing should be about 3 inches. The best time to transplant your seedlings is in spring after the last frost.

Keep your onions well watered throughout the growing season. When they they are approaching maturity, fertilization should cease if you intend to harvest sweet onions. After the bulbs have formed the tops of the onions fall. At this time, the onions are ready to be pulled from the ground.
