Hello Smiling I planted Walla Wallas and Pattersons from bunches ordered from Territorial Seeds. They've been in the ground maybe 5 weeks, and the tips of many of the leaves are starting to turn yellow, spread downward and die. I don't think that I've seen this before with onions, and it doesn't seem normal. I've done some research, and it just doesn't seem like any fungal disease that I read about. I live in wet Oregon and the springtime has not dissapointed this year, just in case rain factors in here. Thanks for your time :)

Welcome!

They look good to me.

You got to put the water to them because they are water storers and pick up water every day. If they don't get it they will take water out of the leaves and turn yellow. As you water the soil, the soil will settle around the onions and the onions will swell sinsing that its losing ground.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
