Bulbing onions are planted in September in your gardening region. They a available in sets (small bulbs) and are planted an inch deep and about 4 inches apart. If you want to grow green onions (bunching onions or scallions) you can plant the seeds in August (follow the directions on the seed package). Onions prefer to grow in full sunshine. Good luck with your onions!
