How do you grow onions?

turquoise(5)March 16, 2008

I've tried a few times, from sets, but haven't had any luck. Does anyone have tips or certain varieties to recommend? Maybe I just don't understand the different varieties. Should I expect large onions like the type you buy at the store? Last year the tops grew, but when I dug them up they were around the same size as when I planted them. For some reason onions have me baffled.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
