Organic Spring Onion
How To Grow
Can be sown outdoors somewhere they will get plenty of sunshine
Ensure there are no stones, weeds and weed roots in soil before sowing seed
Soil needs to have good drainage
Rake soil so it is fine/break up clumps
The soil should be moist before sowing so water soil day before if dry
Sow seed 1.5cm deep with about 2cm between seeds.
Keep the soil weed free, ensuring you don’t damage plant in the process
Water plants in morning
To encourage growth and deter pests, feed every 3 - 4 weeks with organic fertiliser (e.g. dried seaweed fertiliser, sachets available on sow.ie)
Approx. 2 - 3 months after sowing
Spring onions can be harvested when they are about 15-25cm in height, when leaves are deep green and standing upright
Can be eating directly after harvest
Tip: Perfect indoor or balcony plant!
