Welcome!

You can go either way...remove, remove and plant, or let 'em go.

If you remove, it generally will encourage a larger bulb at the base and slow or end spreading at the roots.

They will sprout from planted topsets.

If let go, they will expand their territory virtually unbounded.

Personally, I like them especially as a gap filler between the time my sweet onions run out and another harvest.
