When do I start onion seed?
OK, hoping the 3rd time's the charm, I'm going to try onions from seed again, but need some help. I've got several varieties: Courtland, Copra, and Gunnison. All are approx 100-105 days.
I've read that others start seed mid Jan to early Feb, but the 105 days would run out before the summer solstice when the onions begin the bulbing process. So, when to plant?
Also, as a related question, I've read that you subtract 10-15 days if using starts. Surely those are older than 10-15 days!! My onions made it 10-15 days in the past before they croaked, but they were only the size of blades of grass. What gives?
