We suggest harvesting and splitting bulbs twice a year (Fall and Spring) if you live in Zone 8 and higher. Zones 7 and lower should harvest in the fall and store bulbs in a cool, dry, and dark area until you’re ready to split and plant the following Spring. Thom Multiplying Onions are not a potato onion or a walking onion.

Onions are heavy feeders and will require significant nutrient inputs throughout their lifespan. We recommend feeding them with our 20-20-20 and Ammonium Sulfate fertilizers. Fertilize with 20-20-20 shortly after transplanting. The phosphorous and potassium in the 20-20-20 fertilizer will help to promote solid root development, while the nitrogen will promote vegetative growth. Once transplants are established, we recommend side-dressing or injecting with our Ammonium Sulfate fertilizer.  Side dress or inject 1 cup per 20 feet of linear row every 3-4 weeks after transplanting.
