CULTURE

Seed can be sown in early spring for summer use, and in July or August for fall and spring use. Bunching onions prefer a soil with a pH of 6.2–6.8. Extra-hardy varieties will normally survive the winter if the soil is well drained.

DIRECT SEEDING

Sow ¼” apart in rows of 2–3? wide bands,¼-½” deep. Thin to about an inch apart only if large diameter is needed. Keep well cultivated so that plants receive maximum light.

TRANSPLANTING

For negi-style scallions with a thicker blanched portion, start in flats. Then, beginning in late spring, when 8–18? tall and pencil-thick, transplant outdoors 6? apart, rows 24? apart in holes dibbled about 6? deep. Only 1–2? of leaves need extend above the soil surface. Do not firm soil — allow irrigation or rain to fill in the dibble hole.

BLANCHING

During the growing period hill the plants with soil 2 or 3 times, higher with each hoeing. This forces the leaves higher up the plant resulting in extra-long blanched stalks and a much greater edible portion. When using the “dibble method”, hilling is reduced or eliminated.
