This may sound crazy, but I am slightly crazy and it keeps me busy. An onion plant that has been growing for years in our greenhouse finally had its seed spread by our son. I thought it was a green onion plant. Then this Fall while I was pulling out chickweed, there was a bunch of small bulbs. The bulbs are maybe 2" across at the biggest and thumbnail size at the smallest.
I would really like to be able to overwinter these and plant them next year in the hopes of getting seed. I planted 4 of the biggest ones in the garlic patch. Now I am thinking about some of the smaller ones. It seems like they will dry up and wither away, being tiny. Do you think they would winter over better if I planted them in gallon pots and kept them in the crawl space over the winter ? It is about 45 degrees. Or replant a few in the greenhouse, which drops to 0 - 10 degrees over the winter.
The outside patch is mulched with 4-6" of straw. Outside temps drop to -15 -20.
Thanks for any ideas, Jean in Mt
