I have a couple hundred onions in the ground, and today I noticed some of
them are putting up flower stalks. Why? The weather has not been abnormally
wet or dry, no hot spells, no dry spells. Could it be that the type of onion
I planted are just not well suited to this area? Or did I plant them too
early? I'm also guessing that the onions putting up a flower stalk will not
form a bulb?
I bought them as a bag of generic white onion sets from Wal-Mart. I assumed
they were correct for this area, but in retrospect that may not be so.
Wal-Mart had seed potatoes in early March, but that is too early to plant
around here. I tried, and a late frost killed them all. They did grow back,
but in retrospect planting a month earlier accomplished nothing. I have 4
different types of onions, I'm going to watch to see if all are blooming, or
if it's just this one type.

Buy from Wal Mart and you take your chances. Maybe they are right for
your area and maybe not. Maybe they have been handled properly and
I buy plants from Dixondale Farms and always have a great onion crop.
