Sowing: Since most onions take a few months to mature from seed, gardeners with a short growing season may want to start their green onion seed indoors. Plant the seeds 1/4″ deep in a flat 2-3 months before the last frost date; keep the soil moist and at room temperature. When the tops begin to flop over, cut them off to 3″ to focus the growing on the roots. Four weeks before the last frost or when the soil reaches at least 50 degrees F, transplant the seedlings 3″ apart in rows 12″ apart. For direct sowing, sow three seeds per inch 1/4″ deep in light, rich soil and full sun. Thin the seedlings 3″ apart. Thinned onions can be transplanted or used for fresh eating. For companion planting benefits, plant onions with members of the cabbage family, lettuce, or tomatoes; avoid planting onions with peas or beans.
Growing: Onions need moisture especially in their first several weeks of growth, and they cannot fight against weeds; mulching onions can help with both moisture and weed control. Evergreen White Bunching onions tolerate cold and light frost, since they are the most cold hardy bunching onion available. Green onion seeds are slow to bolt and resistant to PR, thrips and smut.
Harvesting: Bunching onions can be harvested any time after 60 days; the longer they remain in the ground, the stronger the taste will be. If protected sufficiently from the cold, the plants will overwinter for spring bunching. This variety of onion can be used for both green onions and scallions, but does not store well long term.
