regrowing spring onions over and over

by Bill Totten

Some may already know this one. For those who dont, here goes. Ever bought a bunch of spring onions only to find you use some and discard or compost whats left. Buy, or grow your spring onions, when you use them in cooking salads etcetera, cut the root end about 25 mm or 1 inch above the roots and plant this. It will regrow and you repeat the process over and over with the same plant till the plant reaches its useby date. By then we should have more coming on to keep the process going for as long as we continue enjoying spring onions.
Cheers and happy gardening to all Bill T. :)

leeks NEW

Some may already know this about leeks, to those who dont, here goes. I have heard that we dont have to pull the whole leek when ready.Instead pull, cut off the outer leaves, as many as required,and similar to the spring onion leave the plant to keep growing until useby date.
Further to my blog on spring onions, I am now just leaving the plant in situe and removing leaves as required. Give it a go and let me know your results.
Happy gardening Bill T.
