Last year I had some really big bubils on a few of my plants. The plants toppled over early July, so I split and planted the bubils to see what would happen. The bubils did grow and I had a nice crop of little onions.

Why would you pay for something that the kind people on this site, my self included, are happy to give away for the cost of postage?

Everything now is under two feet of snow, but in mid summer, I would be happy to send you some of mine. You may contact me through My Page if you are still interested then.
