Harvesting: For repeated harvests of bunching onion greens, clip plants about an inch above the soil surface, and they will regrow. After cutting, apply fertilizer that is higher in nitrogen than phosphorus and potassium to encourage rapid regrowth. Bunching onions of the species Allium cepa can also form a bulb if given the time and space. To grow bulbs, harvest entire plants, leaving 3"-4" of space between the plants you want to remain and produce bulbs.

Owner Response: Hi Jerry, Thank you for leaving a review. Quality is very important to us. Our seeds are tested frequently by a third-party laboratory to ensure the germination rate exceeds both federal and our own standards. Our horticulturist is sending you an email to see how we can help as it looks like you are having issues with a couple of varieties. Thank you.

Did quite well for me

My climate can be quite hot and dry in the summer, but these did very well for me and are, in fact, still doing well under mulch, into the winter months. I did plant them where they are protected from afternoon sun and kept the soil moist and got good germination. I didn't harvest the entire onion, just clipping the green tops as needed and continue even now in mid-January. They are quite flavorful with a mild onion taste.
