This small bed has 90 Candy hybrid onion starts that I planted today. I took advantage of a morning rain that dampened the soil. Planting in wet soil made the transplanting shock minimal. This is the first time I’ve planted Candy. They are supposed to be big and sweet. I planted on 6 inch spacing to give them plenty of growing room. After I got them into the ground I gave them a good soak. They are looking happy, so far.
This large bed has 152 Copra yellow hybrid onions and 152 Red Wing hybrid red storage onions, planted on 5 inch spacing. I’ve grown both these varieties numerous times with good success.
Growing onions from seed is not difficult and most years we have a good crop.
