How to GrowGrowing scallions is actually easier than growing onions since they have a much shorter growth period. Varieties sown in spring can be harvested just 60-80 days (8-10 weeks) after planting or when transplants reach about a foot tall. Scallions need rich, well-draining soil. In addition, their shallow root systems require constant moisture and weed protection. Tightly packed plantings and mulch can not only help retain moisture but will keep weeds down too. Shallow watering throughout the short growing season is also recommended.
Scallion plants can be sown four to eight weeks before transplanting outdoors or direct seeded in the garden four weeks before the last frost date in spring. Plant seeds about ¼ inch deep, ½ inch apart, and with 12- to 18-inch row spacing. Transplants or sets can be planted about an inch deep with 2- to 3-inch spacing. Blanch scallions as they grow by hilling up the soil.
