Pick greens -- and still harvest bulbs?

mbat(6)July 8, 2008

I wondered if one can pick some of the green onions on a growing bulb -- and still be able to harvest the bulbs later. Or is it one or the other?

I am using the square foot spacing method -- 3"apart in every direction -- so that perhaps I would be advised to pick green onions from every other plant, while keeping the rest to grow bulbs.

Each onion leaf corresponds to a ring in the bulb. Better to grow evergreen bunching onions to use for cutting. Got some seeds if you're interested. Check out the trade list on my page.
