Onions. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 9 May 1902
Onions. As the prepent, though a little late, is a good time of the vpbt to sow onion seed, some effort, should be made to grow, at least, a sufficiency for home use. The ground should be thoroughly well cleaned of weeds and deep-rooted grasses, for the onion abominates any plants growing about it, particularly when it is young. During its growth fiom the seed until it ripens its bulb, the ground should be kept free from weeds. Use farmyard manure, rotten if possible, without stint, and mix it. well with the soil. Make the surface of the soil as fine as you can, and sow the seed about half an inch deep in drills if von can manage it, at any rate, not more than an inch at the most. The drills may be from 9in. to 1ft. 3in. to 18in. aport. If very large specimens aro required, adopt the widest distance, and thin out gradually.
