How to Grow Onion at Home

  • It takes 9 months (summer to spring) for an onion to reach maturity from seed.
  • Usually you can plant the little black seeds in beds and then transplant them when they are about 3 months old.
  • When Onions start to bulb (8 months), you can push the stems over gently, and this will help with the formation of large robust bulbs.
  • You must ridge soil up around the bulb while it is forming.
