EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS
Plant scallions throughout the spring and again in mid to late summer for fall harvests. Sow seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Space seeds 1 inch apart in rows 8 to 10 inches apart, or broadcast evenly for bed planting. Cover 1/2 inch deep and firm soil well over seeds. Be sure to keep soil evenly moist to ensure good germination.
THIN OR TRANSPLANT
Space 1 to 2 inches apart, allowing plants room to mature.
Scallions take up little garden space, so tuck several rows around beds of lettuce, spinach or radishes. Make several plantings a month apart to have a constant supply for spring and summer meals. Prepare soil well with lots of aged manure or compost before planting. Keep evenly moist and weed carefully when plants are young. Mulching to conserve soil moisture and suppress weed growth is a good strategy.
