Growing potato onion for beginner is easy.
It does very well in mild weather.
Just push in the onion bulb into the soil and wait for some leaves to sprout.
We grew potato onion for the first time last year.
We did not pampered them at all.
Just some watering and leave them to grow on their own.
I think we planted them around April~May.
Perhaps can be planted earlier in March, but we usually don't have space in that month.
This is our note of potato onion growing stages.
We grew 3 bulbs of potato onion last year.
The leaves look like spring onions, tempting to cut.
Starting to form separate stalk for new bulbs formation.
More potato onion bulbs forming from a plant.
You can harvest a bulb and let others grow.
The plants will keep multiply bulbs.
Don't need to harvest all the plants, just harvest what you need and let them grow more for you.
Maybe this is a good onion for gardeners with limited space.
We wanted to let our potato onion plant to keep on growing.
But alas the summer weather here did not permit us.
So harvest them all I have to.
Most of the leaves have dried out, by the time we pull out the plants.
Another thing I have to learn and gain more experience of growing onion is the watering part.
How to control the amount water so we have some good number of skin layers.
So that the onions can be stored well.
From those 3 potato onion plants, we got more than 25 bulbs.
Have a nice weekend!
