For best results, onions should be planted in soil that is soft, loamy and well-draining. This makes harvesting onions easier.

Start by tilling or loosening soil with a tiller or shovel and remove any weeds.

Dig rows either with a tiller, gardening hoe or by hand that are at least 6 to 10 inches apart. Allow enough space to hoe between the rows and to be able to remove weeds easily.

Place onion bulbs in the rows 4 inches apart, root side down.

Pull the soil toward the bulbs, using a hoe or your hands, and cover the bulbs with at least 1/2 inch of soil on each side of the row. Onion bulbs do not have to be covered deep; approximately 1 inch of soil on top of onion bulbs is sufficient coverage.

Water gently over the newly planted onion bulbs using the garden hose.

You can harvest when the tops are green, full and as heads begin to form.
