Onions

Zone Sacramento, CA 95828 Zone9 | wickstrum added on April 30, 2017 | Answered

I have grown onions before but it's been a while. I'm use to stopping all water in April they when they are turning brown I pushed the tops down on top of the plants, I've always harvested in June. The question is we had late rains so everything got a lot of water so I couldn't stop the watering because of Mother Nature. My onions don't seem to be forming the bulb yet what have I done wrong or how do I save my onions? Thanks Lyla Wickstrum(Sacramento) wickstrum@yahoo.com

The problem is most likely due to all the rain and irregular weather but this article may help:
