In the Garden: Potatoes and Onions

MEDFORD, Ore. — It’s the first week of April, which is the perfect time to start planting your cold crops.

Potatoes and onions can be planted in a small garden bed, OSU Master Gardeners say just to be sure it’s deep enough for a hole about eight inches deep.

“This is the only time you can buy seed potatoes. You don’t want to use potatoes from the grocery store because they spray them so they won’t sprout,” said OSU Master Gardener, Teresa Reavis.
