spring onions wont develope

Post  rodman on 5/21/2010, 9:04 pm

This is the second year that I planted Spring onions that did not develope. I get tall thin green tops, and soft bulbs on botton. Added a little fertalizer this year, and still no results. I planted in early April. Tops grew tall and thin. Bulbs on botton were small and soft. Pulled and replanted. Getting the same thing again. Any thoughts on what is wrong. Thanks

I thought that is what they were supposed to be like. Little or no bulbs - like scallions? I may be mistaken. And not sure what you mean by a soft bulb? Rotten or just loose? Because the spring onions I am familiar with do not have super solid bulbs.

No the bulb is not rotten. If I peal away half of the bulb, I will get down to a small solid onion. This size is very small. I see them in the store, and they are about the size of your little finger. Mine are a little larger than a pencil.

What variety of onion is it? Here
is a link that speaks to onion requirements, but was written for the southern commercial grower. Can you post a photo?

That sounds like what it's supposed to be to me. I dunno. Scallions are spring onions, and they range from really thin, to kind of overly big for their variety (old in my opinion). Show some pics if you can, please. Smile
