hi,fellow gardeners,you know the spring onions you get from the shops can you plant them
But a spring onion is a spring onion - what do you think it will grow into
Spring onions are so easy to grow from seed and thus give a choice of colour and strength of flavour that I don't see the point of trying to grow the shop bought ones. I am going to try some red spring onions this year as a short term crop between other, slower crops while tehre's space and then in troughs or window boxes.
I've found this blog which is full of useful info on growing spring onions - http://themicrogardener.com/guide-to-growing-spring-onions/
i mean as onion sets
No, wrong plant
I should imagine proper onion sets form a garden shop or stall are cheaper per item than spring onions sold in grocers and supermarkets and they are primed to grow whereas spring onions have been harvested, had their roots and tops trimmed, been sorted, packed and chilled and bunched. All traumatic stuff they will have difficulty overcoming.
Thank you for that link, obelixx! I'm going to try spring onions for the first time this year, so lots of good info there to help me along.
