Alliums Soil and Fertilizing.
I am a fairly novice when it comes to growing onions and garlics. I have heard that they are HEAVY FEEDERS. What doe that exactly mean ? How often do you fertilize and what kind of fertilizers you use ? How about watering ? How deep you plant seedlings/sets (onions)?
Another thing is SOIL type. Do the like well drained or clay ..? How about pH? more on the acid side or alkaline side ? I have this general guideline that most gargen type veggies do best at a pH of 6.8 (+/- 0. 4)
