Help! Should I let my onions bloom?
Hi all - I'm new to onions, so bear with me. I planted
corms (bulbs?) last October - generic white and yellow from
Lowe's in very large well-drained tubs. They sprouted in
January, and are 18" tall now.
But they've just started budding up like they're going to
bloom. Is that a GOOD thing or a BAD thing? I thought that
if they bloom, they won't bulb out... should I cut the
I also planted Walla Walla Sweets in the ground a while back,
but they were from little bundled sets that looked like
green onions. They show now signs of blooming, but aren't
anywhere near as big.
I don't know how to post pictures here, but if you click
on my garden blog link below you'll be able to see exactly
what I'm talking about. It's posted near the top of the
blog so shouldn't be hard to find.
Help - need to know soon or these guys are going to REALLY
bloom, not just be bulbs!
Thank you so much - I learn a LOT here!!
