Growing Green Onions

When you buy bunches of green onions, you can replant them and clip the outsides over and over until it gets hot and they go to seed. Clip about 2 inches above the white and gently trim the roots, just a bit. Get a pot with good soil, stick your index finger in and stick in the green onion. This will work even if they have been in the fridge and not up to par.

Depending on where you live, find a place they like. I am in Arizona now and have them potted on a table under a tree, if that helps. But, I also did the same in Oregon. Figure it out and you'll get way better tasting green onions over and over.

Growing Green Onions

You buy one good bunch of green onions and replant. Gently trim roots, cut off the tops to eat except the center. Replant in one pot, water well, and they come back many times over. Just find a place they are happy campers. Depending on where you live you may want to spritz them. I have already gotten 7 cuttings, some days they shoot up several inches. It's cool. Just figure what works and you'll get several times over the first bunch. Do more than one bunch, and they taste so much better than store bought. (03/14/2010)
