Planting onions can be more rewarding when you use a special supplement that ensures zero pests and a high yield. Here’s how you can achieve a bountiful onion harvest with this simple addition.

Materials Needed:

  • Onion sets or seeds
  • Special supplement (a mix of neem powder, compost, and wood ash)
  • Garden soil
  • Water

Steps to Plant Onions With the Special Supplement:

  1. Prepare the Soil:
    • Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil.
    • Mix the garden soil with the special supplement. Use a ratio of:
      • 1 part neem powder
      • 2 parts compost
      • 1 part wood ash
    • Ensure the soil is well-mixed to distribute the nutrients evenly.
  2. Plant the Onions:
    • If using onion sets, plant them 1 inch deep and 4-6 inches apart.
    • If using onion seeds, plant them 1/4 inch deep, spacing them 1 inch apart, then thin to 4-6 inches apart as they grow.
  3. Water the Onions:
    • Water the onions thoroughly after planting.
    • Maintain consistent moisture, ensuring the soil is damp but not waterlogged.
  4. Apply the Supplement:
    • Sprinkle a thin layer of the special supplement around the base of the onions every 2-3 weeks.
    • Lightly water after each application to help the supplement penetrate the soil.

Benefits of the Special Supplement:

  • Neem Powder: Acts as a natural pesticide, protecting onions from pests.
  • Compost: Enriches the soil with essential nutrients, promoting healthy growth.
  • Wood Ash: Provides potassium and helps maintain soil pH, boosting yield.


  • Zero Pests: The neem powder keeps harmful insects and pests away from your onions.
  • High Yield: The combination of compost and wood ash ensures your onions get the nutrients they need for robust growth.
  • Healthy Plants: Your onions will grow stronger and healthier, with larger bulbs and greener tops.

Additional Tips:

  • Consistent Care: Ensure your onions receive at least 1 inch of water per week, either from rainfall or irrigation.
  • Weed Control: Keep the onion bed free of weeds to reduce competition for nutrients and water.
  • Harvesting: Harvest onions when the tops start to yellow and fall over. Allow them to dry in a warm, dry place before storing.

By planting onions with this special supplement of neem powder, compost, and wood ash, you can enjoy zero pests and a high yield. This natural approach not only protects your onions but also enhances their growth and productivity.
