How to sow and care for F1 Yellow Onion Seeds Seeds
Sow yellow onion seeds in trays or pots to later transplant as seedlings at a young age. This reduces the need for thinning, makes seed use more economical, and, with the protection of a greenhouse or evaporator, seeding can be started at least a month earlier in late winter.
Prepare plug trays by filling them with seed or general-purpose starting mix and pressing firmly into the cells. Sow about 4 or 8 seeds per pot and cover with additional potting soil to a depth of almost a quarter to a half-inch or 1 cm. Use a good stream of water.
To avoid disturbing the roots, transplant the seedlings when they are young. Plant the seedlings about 10 cm apart, and fix them in the prepared soil and water with a drill. Add old manure or compost to the soil in the fall or early spring. Onion plants are prolific to produce large bulbs and require constant feeding.
Make sure to apply a nitrogen fertilizer every few weeks for large bulbs. Once the onions have pushed back the soil and the tubers begin to form, stop fertilizing. You can't backfill around an onion because the bulb needs room to grow.
