Evergreen Bunching Onion is an Heirloom variety, that forms a clump to around 30 - 40cm high.  It is also known as a Welsh onion, Japanese bunching onion, or evergreen bunching onion.

This variety does not form bulbs, the green stem and some of the tube-like hollow leaves are eaten (like shallots).   It is hardy and pest resistant, while still attracting beneficial insects and bees.  Suitable for all areas.

In Autumn or Spring sow seed approx. 5mm deep into a seedling tray, cover with soil. Transplant the seedlings once large enough to handle.  Germination approx. 7 - 21 days.  They can be propagated once clumps are well established, and then divide up.  They prefer an open, sunny site, with free drainage. Maturity approx. 60 - 120 days.
