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?

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!
