200 seeds per packet (unless otherwise noted). Onion seed germinates well in cool weather and may be sown very early in Spring as soon as ground can be prepared, in rows 12 inches apart, covering about ½ inch with fine soil well pressed down. When the plants are 3 to 4 inches high, thin to 4 inches apart in the rows and cultivate frequently, being careful not to stir the earth too deeply. Plants removed when thinning can be used as green onions. Hint: When grown for bunching, the rows can be made 8 to 10 inches apart. The soil best suited to grow onions should be fertile, well drained and well prepared.
