If you find it difficult to grow nice, big, plump onions (white, yellow, or purple) in your home garden, this post is for you.
Onion sets bought locally never seem to work well - and it doesn't seem to matter whether planted in the Spring with some protection, or after last average frost date, or even as a succession crop when the temps warm up a bit.
Dixondale Onions know their onions, and a gardening friend swears by them (as do I after being gifted these gorgeous home-grown onions from him).
Top picks from the Dixondale catalog that have been tested for success in our area include:
You might also try their Intermediate Day Sample, which includes all three of their most famous varieties (Candy, Super Star, and Red Candy Apple).
.The secret to growing great onions is found in a Texas-based catalog from a 108-year family business dedicated to onions: Dixondale Farms.
