The Q&A Archives: Onions Forming Seed Heads

Question: my onions are doing it ok to snip off the tips where the seed heads are forming? thank yoy very much--ray

and off-flavor. Sometimes onions will flower due to fluctuating temperatures, or perhaps because they were planted at the wrong time for that particular type of onion.
