Good things take time and care

Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the


  • Seeds can be sown throughout the year. Best time to sow the seeds is from August to November and are grown via transplantation
  • Take a medium-sized seedling tray with a moist coco-peat medium and drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Sow 2-3 onion seeds per cup, do not sow it deep, approximately 0.5 cm
  • Keep the seed tray in a box or cover it with paper for the first 2-3 days to encourage faster seed germination.
  • Mist the seeds daily to maintain a moist medium
  • Seeds will germinate within the first 6-8 days & tiny sprouts will be visible. Place the tray in a sunny spot near the window. Don’t cover the tray anymore.
  • Second week onwards, seedlings will start growing into a small plant. At this stage exposé the seedlings to more & more sunlight for leaf growth.
  • After the second week, keep only a single seedling per cell/cup. Cut off the weak, small & lagging seedlings with a pair of scissors.
  • 30 to 35 days after the seed sowing, your seedlings will be ready to transplant in container pots or raised beds.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium


  • Choose a container with a minimum depth of 12 inches & bigger spread area (according to available space & your requirement) like rectangular containers, grow bags
  • Ideal planting mixture for White Onion is 2 parts garden soil & 1 part Organic Manure. Or, 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco-peat & 1 part Vermicompost.
  • Transplant the seedling along with the root ball of a medium, without disturbing its roots.
  • Plant the seedlings minimum 6x6 inches from each other on raised beds or in a container.
  • White Onion grows well under full sunlight (6 to 8 hours) in winter. So place your containers accordingly.
  • Add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before transplanting the seedling and a balanced liquid fertilizer or handful of vermicompost to each plant, every 15 days after transplantation.
  • Weed regularly and stop watering onion plants two weeks before harvesting when leaves start to turn yellow.
  • Leave the foliage to die back naturally, then, without uprooting them, pull the onions gently to the surface of the soil to increase the area that is exposed to the sun. After two weeks, lift the onions and spread them out on the soil to dry.
  • 150-160 days from seed sowing i.e. 120 to 130 days after transplantation, Onion bulbs will be ready to harvest.
  • Dry the onions completely before storing them
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep

Common Problems

Why did my plants produce small sized onions?
Onion planted in nitrogen rich soil will put out lush foliage at the expense of bulb growth. If the nitrogen content of your soil mixture is high, interplant the onions with leafy vegetables such as spinach which will help to absorb the excess nitrogen in soil.
Why are there streaks, silvery speckling, and small white patches on leaves?
This happens because of the pests which suck on the leaves and stem of the plants. To control this regularly spray the plant with Neem oil mixture (Mix 3-5 ml neem oil in 1 litre water).

How often do you need to water the onion plant?

Water requirement of onion is therefore less in the first month. Potted plants should be given light watering, every alternate day at this stage. Stage II (More watering): Water is a critical requirement at the time of onion bulb formation. Adequate watering should be done from the second month till the bulbs are fully formed. Potted plants should be watered daily at this stage. Stage III (Stop watering): As the plants start to mature, the leaves begin to turn yellow and start to bend over. At this point, stop watering the crop altogether as this allows the bubs to ripen fully, ensuring better storage quality.
