When do you remove scapes from onions?

When and how deep do you plant onion scapes?

Gardening 15 years and this is a first for me. Thank you

RE: Planting Onion Scapes

I assume by "scape" you mean the flower stalks?

I cut them off as soon as the bulb-like protrusion appears. If you wait for them to bloom it's too late to affect bulb growth.

I've never heard of planting onion scapes. Instead I just use the stalks as green onions.
