What happens if I plant onion seeds now?
Thanks in advance for your help. I've been researching this online for 2 days now with no luck. My question is two fold.
First, I have a seed packet of over 1200 seeds that I'd like to try. The seeds are more than 5 years old and have been stored in my freezer the entire time. Is it likely the seeds will germinate?
What happens if I plant the seeds now? I realize this is not the ideal time to plant onions, but what will I get if I do (small bulbs, no bulbs, zero germination)? I'm in HOTlanta, zone 7b. Avg. temps are low 90s and will probably remain in that range for the next 60 days. First frost is about 120 days from now, late October. I want to plant them in large pots or in a raised bed. The variety is a Cippolini onion (sp?) "Gold Coin" from Johnny's Seeds, 80dtm. What should I do to give them the best chance for survival?
