onion sets in early spring?
I live in the upper part of the lower peninsula
in Northern Michigan. I know that although
root veggies (I believe onion, scallions and the like
fall under this category) like cool weather, they're not
as hardy as other cold weather vegetables (at least this
is what has been told to me from fellow gardeners)
Are onion sets (for yellow onion, red onion, shallots,
and scallions) hardy enough to be grown in early spring
in northern Michigan?
Also I know that there are two different types
of onions-long day and short day. What's the difference
between the two, and what variety are suitable for
growing in Michigan? I love red onion and wondering
if it can be grown in Michigan?
