How to Plant Onions

We’ve been busy planting.  All kinds of goodness just starting to make it’s debut.

One bit of goodness coming up are onions!  We planted white, yellow and purple onion bulbs!

Onions are so easy to plant and give you such a great return on your time and effort.

How to Plant Onions

Loosen the soil with a hoe and remove any weeds or large stones.

Use a  rake to create a level surface.

Make your row.


Dig small holes, just a bit bigger than your onion set and plant each set with the tip UP.


Gently firm down the soil down over the onion sets.

Repeat about 3.5 inches away.


*I often plant my onion sets closer together.  I then thin my onions by pulling some out and using them as ‘green onions’, or scallions.
