Green Onions: Growing and Harvesting

Green onions are an ideal crop for garden beds and for pots and containers. Sprinkle a small amount of seed on the surface of the soil once every two weeks throughout spring and summer, to ensure a constant supply. In mild areas, green onions sown in late summer can be left in the soil during winter, to harvest the following spring.

Simply lift the tangy bulbs from the soil as you need them and use in salads or stir-fries.
