Onions

ONION SEEDS
by Linda C Butler

Green Onions – plant some green onions to add to early salads.  Green onions can be grown in two months from seed and can be grown in shallow containers with holes drilled for drainage.  This means that you can get an onion crop in before you can work the ground to plant.

Stokes Seeds offers a red bunching onion, Red Baron, which is ready in 65 days.  We plant onion multipliers for fast onions, but enjoy the slower growing bunching onions.

If you have chive plants, they will offer fresh mild onion stems for delicate flavor.  Plant multipliers or sets for quick onions.  No salad is complete without onion.
