Gardeners' Notes:

Positive poeciliopsis On Mar 17, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- I have tried several varieties of green bunching onions and I like Parade best. It stays small and usable as a green onion longer than most. It takes Phoenix heat fine, although seed of it doesn't germinate after the heat sets in, so I have to make sure to have several age classes growing by April. It grows very well all winter long and will germinate almost anytime in the winter.

Neutral Farmerdill On Feb 6, 2007, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Excellent variety with vigourous growth, dark green leaves and little or no bulb. Stalks have good green to white ratio, however, hilling soil up around the plants will encourage the growth of longer, whiter stalks. Maturity about 70 days.
