The best onions are grown from transplants set out in October-November and wintered over to mature in June-July. All of our transplant varieties are intermediate day (day neutral) which are best planted in the fall where winter temperatures stay above 0 F. Plant transplants right away, if possible. If you must wait, do not be alarmed if the roots & tops begin to dry out. As a member of the lily family, the onion can live for about 3 weeks off the bulb. Transplants are happy if you apply a light mulch to help conserve moisture for uniform growth.
Order transplants early because supply is limited and only available between mid-October and mid-November. They are perishable and must ship as soon as they are harvested, so your order cannot be canceled unless we locate another buyer. Also, the varieties & quantities you order may not become available at the same time, so plan to accept delivery as plants become available. This can result in additional shipments of backordered items at a higher cost, so inform us when you order if you will not accept any adjustments to shipping charges, so that any backorders will automatically be canceled. Sorry, we cannot make any special exceptions. Transplants ship separately, so figure shipping separately. Sold in 1 lb increments. Shipping weight = net weight of product + 10%.
FedEx zones 6 - 8 must ship via FedEx 3-Day to ensure the health of the transplants upon arrival. All other zones can ship via FedEx Ground. Cannot ship to the following states: HI, ID, PR, VI, GU.
