What are the pros? fun
What are the cons? nothing
I am very proud having started these onions by seed inside in February here in Southern NE. While I've never grown any others, these onions produced nice bulbs in July, and then flopped over pretty soon. I thought they were a bit small then and following advice on the net, I pulled them. However, I should have followed the advice from my aunt in Germany, who said leave them in the ground until the tops are completely dry. I did this with the final bunch, and of course they continued to increase in size as the tops withered in the ground. Something I like about growing onions and will do it again.
