Just bought some from my local farm supply center. The man said t put them out in September and I should get 4-8 onions around each one i put in the ground. Then save the bigger of the outside onions and plant them the following september and so fourth. Anyone else around here grow these? I also picked up some shallots for fall as well. He said they do the same thing as the onions. Anything special I should do before I plant them? I was going to put them in some compost (40%) and sand (40%) mixed in with my clay(20%) Sound like a good mixture? I figure I would rotate them with Carrots and Garlic.
