Yellow Onions are large, sweet tasting onions that are a staple in every edible garden!
The easiest and best way to grow your onions is to use 'sets' which are small bulbs that are planted in spring and grow into full-sized onions by summer's end. They are simple to plant and cultivate, often costing far less than plants and taking much less time and trouble than seeds. If you're trying to decide just how to grow your onions, bear in mind that most seasoned gardeners rely on sets!
Onions need fertile, moist soil with good drainage. Onions have shallow root systems and therefore need frequent watering and careful weeding. As the onion matures its top will turn yellow then brown. Approximately two weeks later loosen the bulbs with a spade. In another two weeks they can be lifted and dried.
