I'm growing green onions and would like them to grow on to be regular onions, my question is do I need to cut the greens off in order for the onion it contuinue growing? Thanks guys!

i was taught another method. take a small trowel or putty knife, and remove the dirt from around the top 2/3 of the bulb several weeks before harvest, and they will grow amazingly large. experiment with some. next year you'll do them all. hth

No. No need to cut them just lean the tops over without breaking them, and the bulbs will get bigger. Don't know what it does but it allways worked for me.

...used to do that as a kid. Best to wear shoes and just press them over so the green tops lay on the ground. Dee

that is to keep them from going to seed and getting soft

Oh you kidders! Everybody knows that's an excuse to get the mud off your new shoes that you weren't supposed to tramp thru the puddle with in the first place and you're in deep trouble no matter what! Better kick the clumps off that manure pile too! And them horrid gopher mounds are a sight.

"I'll get that ma!" 'Slosh-slosh-slosh' lol

Thanks ya'll That's what I thought but wasn't sure and thought I'd be better off on the safe side asking.
