Is it too late to plant Onion plants?

Post  scbusf on 5/4/2010, 1:41 pm

Some animal dug up all my onions last night Evil or Very Mad If I can find Onion Plants anywhere, is it too late to plant them?

I'm in Zone 7b. Thanks!

Howdy from Zone 7A. Yes you can still plant both onion plants and bulbs. Your harvest may be a bit smaller than normal but they will be just as tastey. Onions can also be grown as a fall crop.

God Bless, Ward.

I sure hope so, because I just planted some!! Both plants and bulbs.

Southern States Co-op is where I got my seed onions. Haven't been there in a week or so, not sure if they still have them.

I live in zone 4 and can plant them in late May/early June and still get a great crop. I am planting mine this week.

I (re)planted some very small onions that were extra from my CSA last summer. They stayed in my garden all winter and I had some great onions very early this year. I still have a couple ready to be picked that are about to flower. So I think you can plant them just about anytime, the difference may be when you may want to harvest them.
Happy gardening!
