RE: onion sets


I don't think so.  I can usually find onion sets at local nurseries around
here.  An onion set is really a very small pre-onion (looks like a baby
onion) that will grow at the tops of a mature onion.  (They root when they
fall to the ground.)  I would think bare root onions would be slightly
rooted onion sets.  Hmmm.  Will have to check further.  I'm certainly not an
onion expert as I haven't been able to eat onions for years.

Blessings,

Geez Louise.  You'd think it would be easy to just order some onion sets. 
Up until just now I could only find Onion seed and Shallot sets.  But, no. 
We want onion sets.  so I checked Park.  No - they have "bareroot" onions. 
Is bareroot the same as sets?
