Spring onions are probably the simplest herb to plant!
All you need is shallots.
These were the last of shallots in my pantry when I started the experiment.
All dried up and almost hollow inside.
Not much soil left in stock too.
The picture below shows shallots planted in a flat tray.
See what happened the next day.
It got uprooted!
Clearly not a good sign as roots are exposed.
So I got all four shallots transfered into the smallest round pot that I have.
The intention is to give it some depth so that the roots can reach deeper inside the soil
The next day, one of the smallest shallots uprooted itself..phew!
(See above picture)
I decided not to disturb it at all this time and just observe the growth.
What do you know :)
You may wonder why each sprouted shallot have different growth rate?
I'm as clueless as you are..
The picture above is showing the 4th shallot about to sprout.
Should be seeing some new leaves tomorrow.
Nice and easy..
Harvesting in a day or two from today :)
In a span of 8 days you would be able to garnish your soup with fresh spring onions straight from the garden.
Plan your time to plant your next batch of shallots
for continuous supply
in your kitchen :)
It is that easy!
Sow it and you can forget about it..
Maintenance free and pest free!
and truly delicious..
