Does anyone ever get triple topset clusters ( a cluster, more main stem, another cluster, more main stem, and one more cluster)?

I have - most of mine do at least two tiers some years.

Two tiers is the norm, here.

My walking onion bed was getting old, so instead of digging, dividing, and transplanting, I dug up almost everything, and planted all new topsets. I quickly planted masses of them in several clusters. Next spring, I dig them up and space them.

The old bulbs were eaten.
