Sow indoors for surest results, 0.5cm deep in a tray of seed compost. Water well and maintain a temperature of 15-20°C. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm apart to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out 23cm apart. Or sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 30cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin plants to 23cm apart. Transplant thinnings. Allow onions to dry, before storing in a cool, dry room.
