Time to Plant Onions in NC

by - January 17, 2010

It's strangely warm outside, and I thought I'd look into onion planting dates for NC. Last spring I waited until March or April and my plants bolted and never bulked up. According to the Department of Horticultural Science at NCSU, the window for Spring planting is January 15 - February 25.
