Great cold hardiness makes it a good choice for short-season climates!

Ultra-mild bulbs mature 2 weeks quicker than other Spanish types!
56 days. If you like sweet onions like the ones grown in Vidalia, Georgia but don't have the short-day climate required to grow them, you'll love this ultra-mild variety from Washington State! Maturing up to 2 weeks sooner than other Spanish types, it's a delicious cold-hardy variety with a flattish shape, tan skin, and white flesh. Sweet enough to eat like an apple, yet with an onion "zing" that adds zest to any dish!

Space plants 2 to 3 inches apart in the garden. If you want crisp, tender green onions, harvest the bulbs just after the swelling begins. 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.

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.
