   Allen - I'll bet you'll have good luck with it. Starting with seed also
significantly cuts down on the possibility of infecting with nasty pink rot,

I brought back some 1015 seed from F'burg a couple of years ago. They
produced superb green onions (I was too greedy to let any go on to form
bulbing size.) I started some in plug trays with individual cells and some
in a single flat. I ended up happiest with the plug trays: plant several
seeds in each cell. When you transplant, don't bother to separate; just
plant the individual "clump". Thinning for eating will take care of spacing,
