Keep free from weeds. You need long sunny days to grow large onions. Shallots are very close to garlic and are very easy to grow. Plants can grow 8 to 12" tall.

Water Requirements:

Keep seedlings and transplants consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells.

You can harvest onion for their green stems (scallions) at anytime. Cut the green stems with garden scissors when tops are 4 - 8" tall. For bulb product, let the tops dry up themselves before digging them up. Spread bulbs on ground for 3 to 5 days to cure.
