Onions, one of the most popular cooking ingredients in the world, has finally made its official Valheim debut in the Hearth and Home update. Being such a common cooking element, it was only a matter of time before it, too, was added to Valheim. Since food in the game is such an important part of the gameplay experience, you no doubt want to get some onions into your garden as well. However, nothing is ever simple in Valheim (and that is why we love it), and our Onions Locations – Valheim Hearth & Home guide is here to explain where you should go to look for onion seeds.
Where to Find Onions in Valheim
Unlike some other seeds in Valheim, such as flax and barley, that grow in obvious places where you can find them, onion seeds are a different matter. At the time of writing this guide, we’ve only been able to locate them by exploring the Mountains biome. Here, we found an abandoned village and on the top of one of the buildings here we discovered a chest that had onion seeds inside of it. Of course, if we discover that they can be found in any other locations, we will immediately update this guide.
So, once you’ve found some onion seeds, the next step is to plant these in your garden. If you are unsure about how this works, we have a great How to Plan seeds guide. But to summarize, to be able to plant seeds – onion seeds in this case – you will have to craft a tool called the Cultivator. You will unlock the recipe for this as soon as you first get some Bronze. The Cultivator can be crafted with x5 Bronze and x5 Core Wood, so you should be able to get it relatively early on in the game.
