<![CDATA[Best choice for starting onions?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/734/best-choice-for-starting-onions I've only grown onions from seeds in the past.  I usually start several varieties indoors in winter, as well as seeding directly in the garden in the spring.  I am considering trying onion sets or transplants this year. Does anyone have any advice based on your past experiences with either sets, or transplants?  I don't think it would be possible to ever have too many onions, so I want to plant a lot and have lots left for storage.

<![CDATA[How long does it take for asparagus to establish?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/732/how-long-does-it-take-for-asparagus-to-establish I have been trying to get an asparagus patch started.  Planted approximately 5 years or so ago and each year the plants grow but I do not get harvestable asparagus.  I have consulted the elder gardners in my family for zone 5 and have done all that they suggested to no avail.  I mix in a salt mix into the soil in March and have even worked in chicken coop manure in the past as suggested.  Nothing seems to be working.  Any other helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

<![CDATA[Getting rid of tomato diseases in the off-season?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/692/getting-rid-of-tomato-diseases-in-the-off-season My tomatoes have varying degrees of early blight and septoria. I believe that both of these problems can overwinter, either in the soil, or on weeds, or on plant waste. How can I ensure that these problems plaguing me this year don't return next year? I am considering soil solarization, But I am in zone 5 and will be running out of time for this very soon and it has already been a relatively cool summer here. I have a rather large garden, so crop rotation will be practiced. I have already treated this year's plants with copper, but I don't want to overdo it, since it has been suggested that too many copper treatments can build up in the soil and cause other problems. Any suggestions?

<![CDATA[Tomato Blossom End Rot]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/625/tomato-blossom-end-rot Hi, everyone!  What is that powder that is dusted on the soil to prevent tomato blossom-end rot?  I've tried spraying fungicides on the plants over the years, but I still lose a lot of tomatoes because of that darned B.E.R.  Any other ideas?  I'm anxiously awaiting your suggestions!

<![CDATA[Roma tomatos]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/708/roma-tomatos We are new to gardening and although our roma's did fantastic, many rotted on the plant.  They started out not being staked because we read you don't stake roma's but then we had to put a stick by each one (24) and tie a rope around the plants to keep them upright.  It seems that they were so 'thick' with tomatos that they squished next to one another and got rot spots.  We had hay under them and that seemed to keep the area so 'wet' all the time that any that layed on the hay rotted as well.  We did not have a very wet summer and we didn't water a crazy amount so not sure why it stayed so wet under the plants. Can anyone tell us why this happened to them? It seems they grew to many tomatos for each plant if that makes any sense.  Thanks in advance for your ideas.Smile

<![CDATA[Zone 9 Asparagus]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/461/zone-9-asparagus I'm looking through the current Burpee catalogue, and I'm wondering if anyone has successfully grown the Mary Washington heirloom asparagus in Zone 9, or more specifically, Houston. I'd really love to, but if it'll do poorly I don't know if I want to risk it.
