I didn't plan on planting onions this year but as I was picking up my started leeks there were some "Candy" onions and I thought I would give them a try. I normally start onions from sets but this time I am trying them from started plants.
I know how to prep the leeks for planting so I did the same for the onions. After teasing the roots apart I trimmed them to about two inches in length.
I couldn't find any specific depth to plant them at on the tag or in any of my books so I planted them 6 inches apart about four to six inches deep. We will see what happens. The leeks I planted eight inches deep.
