All of my surviving 3rd year potato onions are flowering. This is the same thing that happened with the onions in their second year (100% of survivors flowered). I was under the impression that by the 3rd year some of them would not be flowering and would simply divide. The flower stalk prevents the onion from bulbing up much like they did in the first year. Can someone with more experience comment on how many years of replanting until the flowering starts to subside? Is there any difference in flowering and dividing behavior when overwintering in the ground vs overwintering in dry storage? Thank you!
