How Can I Grow Yellow Onions From Sprouts?

gregandkathy added on April 13, 2011 | Answered

I have some onions sprouting in my kitchen.  I was wondering if  I could just take the whole onion and plant it right in my garden, or is there something that they really need to grow? I have tomatoes, radishes, butterbeans, okra, cucumbers, and sqaush already growing. Could I just plant the onions in the same row?

You can plant it but it won't make other onions. However, they do get a nice flower, which would eventually go to seed. You could then plant these in order to grow onions in the future. Thiese articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/onion/growing-onion-seed.htm
