  1. Were those seeds collected or purchased? I have never grown onion from seed. We get them as ‘sets’. I remember others collecting the seed, but those were simple varieties; and no one cared if they came true to type.


    1. Hi Tony. I grow all my onions from seed because I like to grow specialty varieties. Most of my onion seed comes from Johnny Seeds in Maine because they have a great selection and high germination rate. Sets are fine but I prefer to grow my own.

      1. Yes of course. I grow sets because they are easy, and because I only want those basic varieties, yellow and red and sometimes white. I do not care what varieties they are, as long as they are close. If I still had seed from my great grandfather’s onions, I would grow them from seed like he did.
