Your Concierge Doctor Has Onion Plants for You

November 26, 2013
In osbervance of Thanksgiving my office will be closed Thursday and Friday. I am available for you at 310-373-5566.
I wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving.
The little onion plants are now in my office ready to be picked up. I bought extra if you now realize you could try growing onions. Please come by the office to pick them up. If you would like me to tape the envelope to the door to pick up after hours please let me know.
I have enclosed the instructions from Dixondale Farms but it is really easy:
Once you have the soil ready ( if your soil is clay make it drain better with peat and vemiculite) put the little plants into the dirt about 1/2 inch- just enough to support the plant. If you plant it too deep the bulb does not grow correctly. Plant them about 6 inches apart to give them room for the bulb to grow
Water the plants as needed..
In March thru May the tops will get brown then you know it is time to harvest. Pull them up and let the dry for  a few days. If it is not too damp outside you can leave them on the dirt or bring inside.
I made a short video showing this. This is my first attempt at a video. If you have any questions please let me know.
Fresh onions taste so good. I know you will find it worth your effort to grow them if you give it  a try.
