Onions

(Allium cepa) Generally speaking, long-day onions tend to do best in the North and short-day types tend to do best in the South. Growing onions from seed is often the only way to get varieties really suited to your location. Heirloom onion seeds are usually started indoors in late winter for transplanting outside a month or so before the last frost of spring.
