We suggest harvesting and splitting bulbs twice a year (Fall and Spring) if you live in Zone 8 and higher. Zones 7 and lower should harvest in the fall and store bulbs in a cool, dry, and dark area until you're ready to split and plant the following Spring. Thom Multiplying Onions are not a potato onion or a walking onion.

Growing Information

Onions are heavy feeders and will require significant nutrient inputs throughout their lifespan. We recommend feeding them with our 20-20-20 and Calcium Nitrate fertilizers. Fertilize with 20-20-20 shortly after transplanting. The phosphorous and potassium in the 20-20-20 fertilizer will help to promote solid root development, while the nitrogen will promote vegetative growth. Once transplants are established, we recommend side-dressing or injecting with our Calcium Nitrate fertilizer. Side dress or inject 1 cup per 20 feet of linear row every 3-4 weeks after transplanting.

Be patient

I bought a cluster of these last year, and they did not do much at all. I put them in raised beds this year and they absolutely took off. My order of 15 is now roughly 150 going strong.

Great service from great people

I just got my onions in the ground so I can't really review that yet. But, this is an awesome company to do business with.

Perfect Condition

I've been waiting on these onions a long time and feel lucky to have them. They arrived in perfect condition and now I hope to have these for many years. I only order from hoss tools as the seeds and plants are always quality.

Thom onions

I'm looking forward to my first harvest in the fall of 2024; the onion starts were planted upon arrival, and appear to be settling in nicely; a few have started to multiply already.

First time to grow these onions.

Planted in a raised bed as soon as they arrived. They are still living, even after a cold snap.
