How to grow
Bulbs can be planted at any time of year and will begin to sprout very soon after planting out. They will grow well in any garden soil with organic matter added. Plant your bulbs a few centimetres deep and about 10-15cm apart. Full sun or a little bit of dappled shade.
Harvest onion greens for most of the year by snipping off with a pair of scissors. Individual onion bulbs can also be carefully lifted, leaving the rest to carry on growing.
Propagating more plants
When your everlasting onions have made a nice clump, you can carefully separate the bulbs and re-plant individual bulbs to form new clumps.
Cooking and eating
Use the green part as a spring onion, bulbs can be chopped and cooked and used like regular onions or shallots.
