I've gardened for many years, but never have had onions started from seed with such thick necks and large plants as this year. Some are from generic sets but others I started from seed (varieties Milestone and Norstar, mainly Milestone). I haven't started onions from seed for a number of years, so I don't remember the varieties I used to plant that had small necks. I usually buy seed from Stokes. Perhaps the situation is due to the very early start to the season (I transplanted onions into the garden about March 10). Any thoughts?
Secondly, I started some Evergreen White Nebuka onions thinking they were the overwintering type, but I think they are just bunching onions. Can anyone point me in the direction of the overwintering onions?
