Plants can be wrapped in a moist towel, placed in an open plastic bag and stored in the crisper of the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. Water frequently as onions are shallow rooted. Harvest mature onions when tops turn brown and look pinched at the point where they connect with the bulb. To store, cut off the stem about one inch above the bulb. Store bulbs in a cool, dark, dry place in shallow open trays. When you receive them, unpack plants immediately. The plants you have received are alive and growing. Due to shipping they may show some signs of distress. If the tops of the plants are damp or mushy when received, loosen the bundles and spread them out so tops will dry. If plants appear very dry or discolored, and planting cannot be done soon after receipt, place the roots only in cool water for only a few hours. Take care not to let the tops get wet or damp. Your plants will revive as soon as planted, so plant them as quickly as possible. Plants will normally keep about two weeks if planting is delayed. SOIL PREPARATION: Apply a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or 10-20-10 at the rate of two pounds per 100 square feet (1 cup for 10 square feet) and work into soil.
