green onion slips

flowerlverMarch 31, 2009

Does any one know where I can find some Green Onion slips. I live in Dickson but work in West Nashville. I have checked at Wallys, L and HD. Checked the Plant Ranch in Dickson too. All I can find are onion bulbs. If you know a place in my area that has them, please let me know.

Hummmmmmm, sounds like you might have to do a quick on-line buy for them.
I know my UPS guy now knows me by name.LOL!

LOL,,I may just have to do that. I have never had this much of a problem with finding them before this year. Every one must be buying them and hoarding them,lol.
Thanks Atoka!

You might try the Dickson Farmers Coop. They have always
carried onion slips and probably have anywhere from 2 to 5
different varieties, ie Texas Sweet, Georgia Sweet,and
several others. They typically come bundled in packages of
about 50 plants. Most of the Co-op's in the area carry
them. They've recently opened their garden center.

My very first post--such freedom from lurkdom--I might just
learn to enjoy posting.

By the way, I'm assuming that you're wanting to grow large
onions and not just scallions.

My dad checked at the Co op last week and he said they only had bulbs. I will check with them again this week. I actually want the scallions and some large onions too. I just started back here at Gardenweb, its been awhile since I have posted. I am not too far from Bon Aqua, I live off of 46. Thanks for posting. I am going to call them today and see what they have.

Hello Beth,
Evidently there are several of us in this area. We live on Missionary Ridge just outside "old" Bon Aqua--you know
they move the post office over to new 46 so we call it old
Bon Aqua.
I've not been to the Dickson Co-op in about 2 weeks so I
can't be sure that they have onions is stock. We bought
a bundle at the Co-op in Fairwiew.

Hi Pat,
I found some slips this afternoon at the Wallys in west Nash today. I got 3 bundles. I couldn't believe that they were $3.50 a bundle. They look good though, they are texas sweets. So, if I don't pull them up as scallions, I just leave them in the ground and they become regular size onions? I have never tried that before. Also, have you ever grown garlic? I want to try some of that too. Here is my e-mail addy,,give me shout.
