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.
Cannot ship via USPS. Up to 30 onion transplants may be combined in a single package, but cannot be combined with other items.
Shipping Weight: 1.10 lbs.
Dimensions: 8"L x 4"W x 4"H
We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, bare-root trees, vegetable crowns… etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as “Perishable” immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
