Zone 6a and 6b | trying2gardengal added on July 30, 2012 | Answered

I live in NW Arkansas area and I have grown some multiplying green onions. They are beautiful but we are going to move soon and I would like to take the sets with me. When is the right time to harvest and how do I prepare them for next spring's garden. I am just learning but want to make sure I do the right thing. Thanks so much for the help in advance.

Harvest mature onions when their tops turn yellow and begin to topple. Loosen the soil around each bulb and pull or dig it up carefully to prevent damage. You can then use the following article to help with storing them for next year:
