When the tops fall over, trim to 3" or 4" to focus the growing on the roots. Four weeks before the last frost or when the garden soil reaches 55 F, transplant the seedlings 4" to 6" apart in rows . To direct sow, sow three seeds per inch 1/2" deep in full sun, and light, rich soil. Thin the seedlings 2-6" apart. Thinned onions can be used for fresh eating or transplanted.
