Welsh Onions

Posted: 08/08/2014 at 08:57

Hi, Rosyanne

I love growing these Welsh onions. A propagation way that has always worked for me, is to simply dig up the clump of bulbs in the spring (say March) or autumn (October) and carefully separate them into individual bulbs. Then replant them with the tips of the bulbs level with the soil surface. 

This way prevents congestion of the bulb clumps.

Edit: We call them 'salad onions' some call them 'green onions', but they are usually grown just for salads.

Won't bother you with the detail. The story behind this song is tragic, but I've always loved it.

Are you going to save your own seed, OL?

Not sure of the time scale, so many variables, such as weather involved. However, if you do intend to save your seed (not recommended) wait until the seed pods turn crispy brown, extract the seed, put the seed in a paper bag (not plastic) then keep in a cool place until needed.

PS. I keep mine from the suppliers in an airtight tin in a outhouse.
