I've never had this happen, but our onions have started to blossom on the top. They really aren't large enough to pull, so what's up? Do I cut off the blossom? Any advice?

If you can cut off the seed head as it first starts, you buy a little time. Once it blooms tho, just salvage what you can. Even if you catch the seedhead, think green onions. They never bulb up properly and are usually hollow.

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