Hi,
There are some incorrect statements in the "Parent Entry" for onions (Allium spp.), namely that "all onions" are biennial, evergreen and only hardy to zone 5a. I imagine these errors probably came about because it's not possible to pick multiple attributes in some of these data categories(?) If that is the case, then I'd suggest that a way to correct it would be to leave those data entries blank in the Parent Entry, and only fill in the specifics for particular species or cultivars. What do you think?
Thanks,
Lori

Hi, Lori. This is good information. The admins can change information in the parent plant entries, but that woukl only leave the boxes blank on any new onions added to the database. There are 461 onions in our database, so @dave should handle this matter. He can delete the information from all of the entries that already contain it.

Just in the onions database, please. If it does apply, it can be added back by hand.
