Title: Planting onions in Michigan
Answered by: Nan Hampton

QUESTION:

Hello, I live in Mi in zone 5. Can I plant green onions now (7/30/09)? And will they have enough time to have for an October-ish harvast? Thanks

ANSWER:

Vegetable gardeing is really not within our realm of expertise.  This is the sort of question that your Michigan State University Extension Service could best answer.  They have a very helpful site, Gardening in Michigan, with vegetable gardening information. The Wayne County Extension office probably can help you as well.
