Huge, savory yellow onions store for months!

It grows just about anywhere in the contiguous U.S.!
135 days. Candy has taken American gardens by storm! No matter where you live, you can grow this huge, savory yellow onion, with thick, succulent flesh and a delicious flavor both sharp and sweet! Candy stores for months -- if you can resist them that long, that is!

Candy is a revolutionary new type of onion. Neither a long-day (Northern) nor short-day (Southern) variety, Candy is a "mid-day" or day-neutral variety. This means that it can be grown just about anywhere from the far north to the deep south. And it's earlier, larger, and more flavorful than its long- and short-day varieties. By combining the best of both in terms of flavor, holding ability, and earliness, Candy is unsurpassed for performance and taste!

Space plants 2 to 3 inches apart in the garden. For mature bulbs, wait until the tops fall over after the growing season. Then dig up the bulbs, cure for 3 weeks, and store in a cool, dry place.

Best Onion Crop Ever
just me from OH wrote (August 17, 2012):
When I received these in the mail I was at first disappointed since they were very small. After planting they quickly grew and became the best crop of onions I have ever planted. They were very tender, mild and large. I look forward to buying them again next season.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
