Onion is a vegetable, without which it is impossible to cook many dishes. That is why it puts almost anyone with a garden plot. Planting onions is incredibly simple, and with proper care can achieve a good harvest.
Do I need to water the onions after planting
Some gardeners believe that onions after planting be sure to water so that the seedlings were in the «wetland» conditions and almost swam in the water. Others believe that watering is unnecessary, or even harmful to the growth and development of vegetables. However, I want to remind that any plant for normal development of the necessary moisture, the bow is no exception. At the same time this vegetable when an excess of water in the soil can easily rot, so plants pour not worth it.
If you just plant onions and not know whether to water it or not, you have two options: if you before planting a flower bed shed water, then the need for irrigation is absent, if the pouring is not implemented, then water the seedlings is necessary, and so that no water gets on the bulbs themselves.
Do I need to water the onions in July and August
If Luke has a well-developed root system, then the need for irrigation depends solely on the weather. In the month of July often there are droughts, rains are absent more than seven consecutive days, the temperature reaches over 25 degrees Celsius. Under these conditions, moisture from the soil evaporates quickly and the plants it is not enough, which negatively affects their development, so watering a bow, most often, simply necessary.
If the July rains are poor, then pour the onion unnecessary. As for August, this month rarely skimp on precipitation, and given the fact that rapid growth of the onion is the end of July, the watering of these plants in the last month of summer can not be realized.
Remember, in hot, dry weather onions need to be watered once every five days, if it rains at least once a week, refrain from watering at all, otherwise you can not avoid Fusarium vegetables.
