Hi, I'm Jene with Jene's Tropicals in St. Petersburg, Florida. I'm here today to demonstrate how to grow onion transplants from seed. You'll need the following materials: you'll need a seed tray, milled sphagnum moss seed starter, onion seeds and a watering can. It's a good idea to begin your seed about 6 to 8 weeks prior to springtime. So, by the time spring hits, you are ready to transplant and grow your onions. First of all, you want to fill your tray with milled sphagnum moss, pack it in, then water it in. So, it's nice and moist. Poke holes about half inch deep, take your seed pack and just put a small cluster of seed per square. Take your finger and cover the seed up with just a thin layer maybe a 1/4 of an inch. And then water it in so it's nice and moist and then put them in a nice bright window in the kitchen. And generally it's a good idea to start the seed about 6 to 8 weeks before springtime. And then by the time they are ready to put in the garden, the sun is shining and they are ready to go. And it's best to harvest the tops of the onions when they are about 6 to 8 inches and they are nice and tender and tasty. I'm Jene; you have a wonderful day.
