Organic Sedona Onion Transplant

Organic Sedona Onion Transplants

CERTIFIED ORGANIC ONION & LEEK TRANSPLANTS Our freshly dug onion & leek transplants are greenhouse grown on a small family farm & are dormant when shipped. It is normal for them to be a bit pale & slightly dry due to dormancy & shipping. In fact, onions are very hardy & can live off of the bulb for approximately three weeks. Generally, we recommend planting within one week of receiving. These healthy transplants will thrive if well cared for. Transplants ship mid-April ONLY!

ONION SETS- Alternatively, we also offer naturally grown onion sets. These Non-GMO, Non-Treated, small pearl sized bulbs are planted whole for a summer harvest.  Choose from yellow, red, or white onion sets.  Onion Sets can ship earlier than the transplants, beginning in March.


    • All of the varieties of onion transplants & sets we offer are either Long-Day or Intermediate-Day onions. They are adapted best for latitudes as far north as Maine to as far south as Northern Texas, depending on the variety. Our onions are not adapted for Short-Day regions.


  • Sun Requirement: Onions require full sun – the more the better! Therefore, avoid planting next to crops that might shade your onions.
  • Soil Fertility: Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer is essential for growing healthy onions, especially if your soil fertility is low. For the best growth and yield, onions need fertilizer at planting time and additional side dressing throughout the growing season.
  • Planting: Onions grow best on raised beds or raised rows at least 4″ high. Typically, onions can be planted as early as 4 to 6 weeks before the last estimated spring frost.
