Organic Spring Onion

How To Grow

Sowing/Planting seed:

  • 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)


Growing Time: 

  • Approx. 2 - 3 months after sowing


Harvest: 

  • 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!
