possibly stupid Onion questions?
I brought "sets" (little onions) after failing with seeds last year, (who from a country with only 2 zones would know that there was such a thing as long and short day?).
anyway I did a search and learned that they are more likely to set seed as they are 2yr, and any over the size of a dime is more likely to do this, So I spent a few hours with a dime and my onions...I led a madcap, roller coaster of a life... in my head!
well over 2/3's where under that size and I have planted them 16 per sq ft, and I am now left with the rest, so here at last are my questions
1/ I read these could be used like green onions, what are green onions? like bunching/scallions?
2/ if like bunching I presume the bit you are eating is the shoots/leaf type part?
3/ if you are using them in this way, not for the bulb, can you plant them closer? so more than 16 per Sq ft?
4/ once you cut them, will they grow more shoots?
I realise that the last 3 depend heavily on my assumption of number 1, but I am clueless.
