Pinching Onion and shallot scapes?
Hello to everyone. I'm new to this site. This is my first season with onions, shallots, and garlic. I was told by a local farmer to pinch off the garlic scapes for bigger bulbs. The energy goes to producing bulb not seeds.I planted the garlic last fall,it is beautiful. I added bone meal and manure to the soil. I planted onion and shallot sets this spring. The onions are starting to send up flower buds. Does anyone know if this is true with onions and shallots? Should I pinch after it flowers or pinch or pull the scape?
