    I don't know who to ask so I thought I would post it on here. I figured one of you all would probably know. [​IMG] I planted onions earlier this spring and I've almost ate all of them! So my question is, can I plant more onion plants right now? Or is it to late? Then things was sooo good! [​IMG]

    Thanks,
    Andi

    I should think you should have time to plant more now. If you get early frosts you might have to protect them.

    Here in NC it is too late / early to plant them. We plant them here in October through April. Dont know about Oklahoma though [​IMG] Call a feed store or nursery that sells gardening plants they should be able to tell you about planting them now in your area!

    you can plant them now....but they might not get very big before the first frost. That is, if you are wanting large sliceing onions. If you are just wanting "green onions" Go ahead, plant them.
