How to sprout onion seeds

  • Rinse and soak the onion seeds in clean water for 12 hours.
  • Drain and rinse the seeds and put them in your sprouting tray or jar.
  • Rinse the seeds twice daily.
  • Onion sprouts are slower than other sprouts but should be ready within 10-15 days.
  • Onions are unique in that the sprout they produce is actually the plant - as opposed to the root. The sprouts look like micro-scallions.
  • Once you see sprouting you can move the sprouting tray into the light – but not direct sunlight.
  • Onion seed can also be sown as a microgreen.

  • Also rich in calcium, iron and potassium.
  • The greener onion sprouts which were exposed to more light will also contain a significant amount of chlorophyll.

How to grow onion microgreens from seed:

  • Sprinkle the onion seeds over a tray of compost and press down gently.
  • It is advisable to use a micro biologically tested compost such as Klasmann’s Peat Free Seed Compost to ensure there is no ecoli present.
  • Keep the compost moist – be careful not to over water though!
  • The mini scallions that are produced are smaller than the seed so it is a good idea to sow onions more densely than other microgreens.
  • Slow growing – but big on taste and visual impact!
