Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion Planting Instructions:
Plant seed 1/2" deep, 1/2" apart, in rows 12 to 18" apart. Thin to 4" spacing for large bulbs, 2" spacing for smaller bulbs but higher yields, or 1" spacing for scallions. Start transplants inside about 8 to 10 weeks before last frost date. Transplant 2 to 4 weeks before last frost date. Space 4" apart for large bulbs, 2" apart for smaller bulbs, or 1" apart for scallions. From sets: Plant sets about 1" deep 2 to 4 weeks before last frost date. Space 4" apart for large bulbs or 2" apart for smaller bulbs. Onions have shallow root systems and need consistent moisture and good weed control.

Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion Harvesting Instructions:
You can always tell when onions have stopped growing. The leaves will lose their color, weaken at the top of the bulb and flop over. Let most of your onion tops fall over by themselves - maybe 80% or 90% of them - then bend over the rest of the tops. Once they're down, leave the bulbs in the ground for another 10 days to two weeks to mature fully.
