What are the pros? Very tasty, High Germination,
What are the cons? long wait for bulbs
When you plant ANY onion make sure you give the seed at least 2 square inches all the way around because the roots shoot out fast and crowded onions are scragely! surface plant seeds in pure peat from broken up moist jiffy pelets at least 5 inches deep of peat for highest germination then wait 3-4 weeks to transplant into soil. keep the onion sprout TRIMMED DOWN CONSTANTLY TO JUST 3 INCHES!!!! This forces the plant to convert the energy into making a bulb root instad of a long stringy shoot. Animals in the wild act like a lawnmower grazing them down. Gardeners have to substitute that with trimming. Transplant as much of the clod of peat as you can and don't break the root! Onions need loose well drained moist soil. sprinkle with fertile dirt an inch up the shoot when you transplant. Give the new transplant 4 square inches. When the onions begin to look mature, hold back on watering and keep the soil BARELY MOIST!! or the bulb can split or rot! Be patient, onions take a long time.
