Re: onion sets

I was going to put in my 2cents when I got through reading the days
mail and could get up to go look for the Dixondale catalog.  I used
to use sets but some years ago another gardener told me to try 
plants.  I have done this for some years now with really good luck.
I used to buy from a place in Georgia which would also sell me 
collard plants, but they went out of business several years ago and
recommended that I try Dixondale.  I have been quite pleased with
their onion plants, but they don't sell collards.  Collards take too 
long from seed in this climate - I guess I could start them indoors,
but that's a lot of hassle.  I do recommend using plants, and I
also have found Dixondale to be a good source.
It helps to have someone to share plants with.  I order far more
than I can use and share them with my club members and 
neighbors.  The crazy pricing makes it almost cheaper to buy
six or seven hundred instead of just one hundred.

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?
