There are lots of things you will grow that will benefit from a snip snip now and again. If you got onion starts from me.....Please go out and snip snip until there is only 4" left on each one or less. Does that make you crazy? Well after they have gotten over the shock of travel in a box and being put in the ground (a week or two) then cutting them down will make the bulb stronger. This is what we want, strong onion bulbs because they are storing onions. It's not the same with the little green salad onions. We will do this again in another bit of time and I'll tell you when.
Just REMEMBER.....STRONG BULBS! SNIP SNIP
