Grow Your Own Green Onions

Grow your own green onions…much faster than celery. Next time you buy green onions, save the bulb and toss it in a jar of water…you’ll have a whole new bunch in 12 days!

Grow Green Onions

To grow green onions:

  • Place the white ends in water in a sunlit window
  • After a few days green shoots will begin to appear
  • Transfer onions to a glass or jar
  • Use scissors to cut off onion greens as needed
  • Replace water as needed. 

You can keep doing this indefinitely…the onion will just regrow!

This method also works for leeks and shallots.

Green onions are healthy too, they are a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and folic acid. So not only are they delicious, they’re good for you!
