  • I was just thinking this on Friday can you pickle spring onions or is there to much green

    Well, you can keep them in the fridge for perhaps a week or two.  They stand quite well in the garden, certainly into October.  Dig a few as you need them.

  • Agree with Welshonion here. You're not talking about Onion sets that you plant in the Spring are you?

  • found it YES you can pickle spring onions check this out

    I shall be giving this a go 

    I'm also going to have a go in the summer at drying tomatoes as I love sun dried tom's

    Man Of kent

    Just about to plant two types of Autumn sets that should be available in June - July which wont need to be stored

    In February to April 2014 I intend to plant some Spring onions and it is these that apparently I can harvest and store from August to September

    ? How long will these last into the Winter if I "Store " them

  • I would have thought that successional sowing would be the best idea for having the freshest spring onions. spring onions are pretty perishable after a while so i would not think they would be much good after a couple of weeks in the fridge

    CluelessGardener looks to have found the answer though. Perhaps you could look into pickling them?

    When I've grown Spring onions (green salad onions) I find successional sowing and pulling them as needed works best. image
