Apple,

I'm growing Red Beard a bunching onion. Seed from Territorial. Though it could be treated as a perennial, I'm growing them as annuals.

Kisal is correct. Around here the pictured onions are known as green onions.

I-boy, What variety onion are you growing??

The ones I have are Onion Bunching/ Scallion White Lisbon.
60-100 days bulb.

So the instructions say to plant as early as possible.
Seed spacing: 1/2"
Row spacing: 12-18"
Thin: Do not thin.

What should I do in containers? Just plant them in that rubbermaid container DDFarm?

So then I just plant in rubbermaid that is 6-8" inch deep? with 1/2" inch apart or 6" inch for seeds?

I-boy,

If we over think everything, nothing will get done. :wink:

I would take the Rubbermaid fill it with dampened soil mix. Pat it all down all around and in the corners. Next take your packet of seed and broadcast across the soil surface. Lastly, cover the seed with just a dusting of soil mix. You may or may not what to cover with plastic, I would not. Thin as needed and eat them. :)

Good advice.
I'll set them 2" apart then.

Time to go buy a container!
