How to grow green onions from green onions + poem guide

Tall green mild and meek
Not quite the full onion
The gentle leek.
A bulb related to onions and garlic,
With white, light and
Dark green sections.
When you buy green onions,
Don't waste the root,
It can grow an abundance of onions,
Endless supply of green onions.
Two ways to grow,
Water or soil,
With soil, it creates greener foliage,
And more tasty taste,
But water is faster.
But you have to look after nutrients.

Green onions are great in many dishes and Many archaeologists, botanists, and food historians believe onions originated in central Asia. Other research suggests onions were first grown in Iran and West Pakistan.

When we talk about gardening, many people just google “how to grow….x,y and z “, but there is a difference between a person who just googles something and a great gardener. You have to think like a gardener, a gardener may think, where was green onion originated from, well it originated from central Asia or Iran/west Pakistan, which are in tropical climate and have generally 2 season, summer season and rain season. And that should tell you that this crop should be planted in late spring to late summer.

Why regrow green onions?

  • Save money. You don’t need to buy green onions anymore.
  • Save time. You’ll get a continuous source of recipe ingredients or garnishes right when you need them.
  • Reduce waste. You’ll never have to toss out a half-used bunch of green onions that you forgot in the fridge.
  • Wow the world. It’s a foolproof project that’ll impress kids and adults alike with your mad green-thumb skills.

And you don’t have to start from seed, you just need the waste of the green onions, the roots. And there are two ways to grow a green onion. You could grow in soil or water, and I usually recommend to plant the green onion roots in soil, cause even though it will take longer time for the roots to settle down, you will get tastier green onion, but you could certainly grow in water, but you just have to manage it’s nutrients and I am the type who wants least work to highest yield.

Sun, water and temperature

Green onions need evenly moist soil throughout the growing season. Provide the onion plants with about 1 inch of water per week. For optimal plant growth, the soil does not need to be soggy, but it should be moist. Water the garden bed every few days, or when it begins to look dry and dusty. Light. These are leafy vegetables that can handle a bit of shade. But they do best and remain healthiest in full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days. Scallion seeds generally need a soil temperature of at least 45 degrees Fahrenheit to germinate, though warmer is better. The plants like temperatures between 68 and 78 degrees (20-25 celsius) . They do not mind humid conditions, as long as they have good drainage to prevent rot and other diseases.

And you don’t have to take out the whole onion, you can just clip the onions, and it will regrow again.
