Big pungent yellow globes are packed with spicy onion bite.

Though called a short-day, it grows well from Mexico through Ohio!
110 days. Here is a short-day yellow onion that doesn't know geography. Though supposedly best in southern climates, it grows just as well up north, and has been known to wander west without damage too! Texas Super-sweet is easily the most widely adapted yellow, and one of the most delicious, too.

These firm, round yellow globes are packed with pungent flavor. They hold very well after harvest -- more than 2 months with proper curing -- and are trouble-free in the garden. Expect this open-pollianted, very vigorous plant to deliver high yields of terrific flavor no matter where you live! Sold in bunches of 5 dozen.

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.

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.
