4 inches in diameter, disease-resistant, and very widely adapted.

This long-day delivers great flavor in every bite!
90 days. Our new favorite red onion, Red Zeppelin is simply better adapted to various climates and conditions than most others. It stores fantastically, offers good disease resistance, and is delicious. What more could we ask?

Red Zeppelin reaches about 4 inches in diameter, very hard with solidly packed rings of deep red enclosed in a tight skin. More amenable to environmental challenges than Red Bull, it delivers great yields every time -- blemish-free bulbs from vigorous, healthy plants. Resistant to pink root and fusarium basal rot, it's a great choice for beginning gardeners.

Its best feature, however, has got to be its storage ability. These onions last for up to 8 months after harvest, carrying you through winter AND spring without losing a bit of that spicy-sweet flavor! You will love these large, beautiful, absolutely delicious onions! Pack of 60.

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.
