Grow Big, Beautiful Onions from Easy-to-Plant Sets

Onion sets are a convenient way to get a jump start on your onion crop. They're not mature onions, but specially prepared young onions that have gone dormant. This dormancy period is like a pause button on their growth. Once planted in your garden, they'll quickly establish themselves and develop into large, delicious onions by around summer solstice.

What You'll Get:

  • Bag of 100 onions 
  • Shallot will be 10 

Planting Guide:

  • Plant onion sets 4-6 weeks before the last spring frost in your area. This allows them to establish roots before hot weather arrives.
  • Pick a sunny spot in your garden that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Onions prefer well-draining soil. If your soil is heavy clay, consider amending it with compost or other organic matter to improve drainage.
  • You can prepare the soil by loosening it with a rake or hoe. A little light fertilizer can be helpful for onion growth.
  • Make shallow trenches about 1-2 inches deep and 12-18 inches apart.
  • Plant the onion sets with the pointy end facing up, spacing them 4-5 inches apart within the trenches.
  • Gently cover the sets with soil, leaving the pointed tips exposed.
  • Water the bed thoroughly.
