Below are some tips to remember when placing your onion plant order this season.
1. Select the Right Varieties for Your Area
Ordering varieties that will grow well in your area is crucial to your onion crop success. Short day varieties grow best in the lower latitudes. Intermediate day varieties are our most versatile varieties that grow throughout the middle part of the country. Long day varieties are most successful in the northern most part of the country.
2. Select the Appropriate Ship Week
Choosing the appropriate ship week will ensure that your onions arrive at the proper time for you to plant them. We recommend planting your onion plants about 4-6 weeks before your last freeze for your region. Our Zip Code Chart provides the recommended ship weeks by Zip Code for your reference. As always, you know your area’s weather better than we do and may want to adjust your selected ship date from the Zip Code Chart.
3. Order Early
Order early to ensure that you receive the varieties you want. While we work hard to avoid varieties shortages and crop failures, orders are processed and packed in the order they are received. Also, on varieties that seed is or may become limited, you will want to be sure your order is reserved in advance so you receive your plants.
