The very best way to get a head start on bulb onions' long growing season is to begin with pre-started plants. Onions grown this way can get ahead of the weeds and bulb up and keep much better than store-bought "sets." We're pleased to offer top quality onion plants painstakingly grown, harvested and shipped to you directly from Dixondale onion ranch in Texas. These fine family farmers have been producing onion transplants since 1913 and are widely recognized experts in onion culture.
Your vigorous baby onion plants will ship just after being freshly lifted from the growing fields. On arrival, they look like little scallions. Don't worry if they seem a little pale looking after being shipped – they'll green right up after planting. Plant them out according to the directions in the Onion Planting Guide (included). Onion plants are sold in bunches of approximately 5 dozen plants for big harvests of firm crispy onion bulbs.
Shipping: Plants are shipped directly from the grower, depending on your climate zone and transit weather conditions, beginning in January through April or early May. Allow 7-10 business days in transit. Shipping is via USPS Priority Mail. (UPS 2nd day delivery option is not available for this product.) See shipping schedule below. Sorry onion plants cannot be sent to Idaho, Hawaii or Canada.
Please note: onion plants ship directly from our grower, separately from seed packets.
Especially for our customers, we've had our grower Bruce Frasier put together these handsome combinations, so you can enjoy their diversity in every part of the US. Each sampler is made up of equal amounts of crispy yellow, wine-red and pure white onions, with varieties customized to the day length of your region, so your onions will begin to bulb up at the right time for best harvesting.
