What you must do before planting onions for the winter for a plentiful harvest: an important tip
Farmers start planting winter onions from mid-October to early November in order to be in time for the cold snap. It is necessary to choose a clear and dry day for planting, as well as to apply the right fertilizers to ensure a plentiful harvest.
OBOZREVATEL has found an effective tip to help with this. Fertilizing will ensure active fruit growth.
The main element that onions need in the fall is nitrogen, but the fertilizer should also contain sulfur, boron, manganese, and iron. All of these nutrients can be found in wood ash (a mixture of unburned plant residues). It is a universal fertilizer that is suitable for all vegetables and any type of soil.
When planting onions, a little ash should be poured into the hole to ensure that the fruit is supplied with nutrients throughout the winter.
It is also worth choosing the right bed for planting. Well-drained sandy soils that have been fertilized with compost or humus are best.
It is also important to observe crop rotation. Do not plant onions in the beds where potatoes, legumes, parsley or celery grew.
