  • Before planting, the onion sets should be warmed up either in batteries or in the sun (the temperature is not higher than forty degrees).
  • On the night before planting, the bulbs are soaked in complex fertilizer.
  • Immediately before planting, the onion should be soaked in copper sulfate for ten minutes, this will help save the onion from fungal diseases.
  • If you want to get greens, then the tops of the onions need to be cut off, if you want to get onions, then you do not cut anything off.
  • The bulbs are planted in pre-prepared beds in a dry and sunny place.
  • For a good summer harvest, the beds should be prepared in the fall so that the onion sets can be planted in the spring.
  • A few days before planting the onion, the beds need to be shed with a solution of copper sulfate (two liters per square meter).
  • You can plant onions only in warm soil, if the soil temperature is below 12 degrees, then problems will arise.
  • Planting depth - no more than four centimeters, after planting it is good to water everything.
