I've been buying my onion starts from Dixondale Farms for many years. The size of the starts varies from year to year, presumably due to growing conditions at the farm. Nevertheless, they are always healthy and arrive in great shape. I like that you can specify when you want them to arrive at your house and they always arrive very close to that day. Except for last year, when I apparently forgot to enter that information when I placed my order. Much to my dismay, the onions shipped in mid February or something. We were traveling at the time so they sat at the post office for about 6 weeks. No worries - they looked great when we finally picked them up and we had a bumper crop of onions that year.

I've resisted writing a review of any company over the years. This is my first evaluation. They all (in my opinion) try to maintain a good reputation by supplying reasonable products with satisfactory service and costs. I guess this is called competition in the marketplace, but there is one company out there that excels above the "norm" for good customer service, quality, prices, and dependability. It is, of course, Dixondale Farms. I've ordered from them since about 2008, and I have never encountered a problem of any kind that I can recall.

Their service is excellent without question. Orders are shipped in two-day flat-rate boxes, always arriving in good condition. The quality of their plants is the finest I've seen anywhere, and their prices are very reasonable, if not the best -- including local nursery offerings. Monthly newsletters from Dixondale give tips for growing, fertilizing, and harvesting onions: all from an expert in the business, Bruce "Onionman" Frasier. Here are some pictures of onions I've raised from them.

My first order from Dixondale was in the year 2001. I've ordered from them every year since then!
The plants I've received have been of excellent quality, with the exception of one year when a few bundles arrived short of count. No worries though, they immediately sent out replacements, which I received within two days.
Customer service is as wonderful as the plants Dixondale offers; 'tis a great blend of friendliness and business combined, a rare treat!

For those needing an education on how to grow onions (which plant food/fertilizer to use, info on disease control, weed control, harvesting, and storing) or needing products for growing (fertilizer formulated specifically for onions, pre-emergent weed control, bags for onion storage, etc), their website has it all.

I've ordered onion transplants from Dixondale for many years and have always been pleased with the plants they send. Bruce is a good guy and a true Texan with that hat he wears, even indoors!

I don't think I'd like to order onion transplants from anywhere else.
