My Walla Wallas are doing great; they're impressive plants. My question is, do you remove the bloom heads before they open? Somebody in town said you have to do that to get the bulbs.

yes, correct.
remove the flower bus in order to give all the growing energy to the bulbs.
these buds are good also in your cooking, don't throw them away !
happy gardening!

I was also going to recommend the Dixondale site. It's a wealth of information!

You probably need to go ahead and pull all the onions that have bloom stalks.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
