1. When you use your spring onions, save the white bit at the ends with the roots. You'll want to save an inch or so.
2. Put the ends roots down in some water. After a few days the chopped bulbs will begin to re-sprout!
3. Now you're ready to plant! Find a bit of soil and pop them into the dirt spaced a few inches apart. Give them a little love and some water, and they'll be sweet! ;)
4. Let them grow and mature into the desired length. Don't forget to water!
Brilliant! I love this new trick. I now have a sturdy little crop of regrown spring onions.
How does your garden grow? Are you gardening this season?
Inti (the most brilliant person I know. actually.) commented this after reading the post:
actually tal, i just thought once you plant them, why not just cut them and leave the root in?! then you can just keep cutting and regrowing! Also, they can be called scallions, as i'm sure as an american you know ;)
