KEEP SOW­ING SPRING ONIONS

The Napier Mail - - OUT & ABOUT -

Spring onions are such an easy crop to grow and tend to do well for much of the year so it makes sense to plant or sow seeds reg­u­larly. A bunch of five spring onions in the shops will set you back around $3, yet a packet of seed for the same price will give you 600.

To grow your own, sow seeds di­rect in rows or blocks in a sunny spot, cover with soil, firm down gen­tly and wa­ter in lightly us­ing the fine mist set­ting on your hose.

Seeds will ger­mi­nate in around 10 days and can be thinned to 2cm apart to give them space to spread out.
