12 THE SCTANTON REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY, APRIC 128, 1935 IT'S A GARDEN YEAR : . Include Onion Crop, ) Using , Seeds or Sets EDITOR'S NOTE: this ig ene of a irriu of artieln written exclusively for The Associated Pren en - rerninj haw one my utilise hl bck yard, or other tract of unmed land, for garden purpose. By DR. L. C. CORBETT Principal Horticulturist; Bureau of Plant Industry, U. S. Department of Agriculture Most gardens will include plantings of onions. All onions are v.'ite hardy and will withstand considerable cold, but there is marked variation in this rcspest. The Prizstaker class alonsi with the "panish onions are less hardy than Australian Brown and the Danvers ' rrrcup. In general red and brown onions are a little hardier and more disease : ;slstant than the white - skinned sorts. Broadly spsaking, onions are propagated from seeds and from sets. Top - sets are small bulblets produced above ground In clusters like flower heads. These small bulblets are planted in tha open usually in early spring and quickly develop into a "scallion" suitable for early table use. and if left standing will throw up a flower stalk cn top of which another cluster of bulblets will be produced. Sets Are Small Onions The greater proportion of all onion ?ts are of another class. These are really small onions grown the previous reason from seed sawn thiak and grow dwarfed because they are crowded. These little onions are harvested and cured much the same as market onions and are held over winter in a cool loft to be sold the following spring as onion sets. Such sets planted out early in the season quickly develop to bunch onion size and left to come to full maturity WHEN ONION PLANT IS 2. Oft 3 INCHES TALL, ROWS SHOULD BE THINNED TO PREVENT CROWDING I J SEED SHOULD 'BE , PLANTED IN ROWS Z TP 15 INCHES APART Onions, a popular corp. may be planted early and raised from either seeds or sets. If seeds are used, the plants will have to be th'nned out. This sketch Illustrate the process.

The seed is scattered' thinly and covered from one - fourth to three - fourth inches deep, depending upon the soil and the characteristic weather conditions - of the region. ' When two or three inches tall the young plants can be thinned to prevent crowding. The young plants if carefully lifted may be set in another place in the garden. As soon as the young onions have attained the bunch onion stage with stalks a little thicker than a lead pencil, a second thinning can be done leaving those that are to produce the onions for autumn and winter use three to five inches apart. I On good soil the larger sorts vl'il crowd when so thinned. Give frequent shallow cultivation and keep the pate.1) free from weeds. - : Starting Early Onions are also grown from seed planted in hot beds or cold frames early in the season. The seed Is sown either in rows or broadcast and as soon as the young plants are as thick, as a siate pencil tney are carefully lifted, about one - half the top cut off and these stubby plants transplated six ra ight inches apart in rows 12 to 15 inches apart.
