Growing red onions are coming along very well and today, we notice a small growing (what looks like to be) flower on the tip of the onion. I know it may be beautiful in time, but my question is, is my onion in any danger and can it continue to grow or do we have to pull out the onion now or clip the tip off? HELP!

Most people do cut the flower off because it will sap energy away from making the onion bulb. But, if you would like to have seeds to collect and grow, you can leave it on.
If you want to collect the seeds, you do need to let the seed pod dry before collecting the seeds.
