Though easy to plant, it's not always a sure bet that you'll get huge onion bulbs each season. In fact, onions can be a bit finicky.

In this episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, I go over the "long and short" (pun intended -- you'll understand after you listen to the episode) of growing onions. I talk about:

  • which onions you need to grow for your latitude
  • when to plant
  • when NOT to grow from seed
  • what triggers bulb growth
  • what causes bolting (when an onion sets seed instead of producing a bulb)
  • what to do if your onion plant does bolt
