One good thing to know when learning to grow onions is that they are frost resistant and they can easily grow in most climates. They can grow in almost any type of soil - whether they're heavy clay or sandy loans. For soils that are heavy, you may need to introduce manure or organic compost into it to help it develop moisture retaining properties. At the most, onions prefer to grow in slightly acidic soil. The good pH for onions is 5.5 to 6.5 pH.
Next you will want to tie them in the case you are using stakes with a soft string such as soft yarn or something like that. Then you will want to prune them by removing all of the leaves below the first flower cluster on the plants.

Step 1 - Build a sturdy teepee trellis which the pole beans can climb. Use a trowel to delineate your trellis base. To do this, draw a circle about 4 ft. in diameter. Then, build the tepee using 6 bamboo poles. There should be even spaces for the poles around the circle. Afterwards, drive each of the poles to the ground around 18 to 24 in. deep.
The result of biochemical evaluation of the fruit of Nauclea of latifolia carried out by Nkafamiya I. et al (2006) in the African Journal of Biotechnology Vol 6 [19 ] shows that the fruit of egbesi plant/tree possess high values of calcium,phosphorous and magnesium and this indicates that the fruit can play a vital role in the development of bones,teeth, it is a co-factor in enzymatic reactions, good for nerve impulse transmission and can be used as anti clotting agent . The iron levels of the fruit which range between 1.8-6.7mg/100g is 2-5 times higher than value obtain in fruit like orange [0.2mg/100g] and mango [0.4mg/100g]
