    The onions are not nearly the size I'd like. If I cut off some of the stem will the onions keep getting larger? They're sweet onions.

    TIA - Maggie

    You need to snap off the flower heads as soon as you see them. If you don't, you'll get a green stem running through the middle. They may get a little larger...depends on what type they are and what zone your in.
