For best results, onion seeds should be started indoors in flats and transplanted out of doors when seedlings are between 4-6 inches tall, taking care not to damage the roots. Onion seeds will germinate best in warm soil, between 68-75 degrees, with consistent moisture. Onion growers know that great onions come from well prepared soil. Onions need a sunny patch of fertile soil with good drainage. They prefer a pH of 6 to 7.5. When setting seedlings, actual root depth will depend on the length of root, but usually between 1.5 and 2 inches, making sure that most of the white of the stem is planted along with the root. Seedlings should be set at least 2-3 inches apart. Onions will thrive in moderate temperatures with consistent moisture. It is important to not let your onion plot dry out completely, this could stunt or even completely stop growth.
