Heirloom Egyptian Walking Onions ★ Prolific Reproducers ★ NON GMO ★ 20 Bulbils

Its just after Christmas and already I’m dreaming about spring and slowly starting to plan out our gardens.

These little guys are one of my favorites in the Perennial garden.   They are amazingly hardy ( Even in Southern Michigan)  and one of the first plants to wake up come spring.  Tasting just like green onions they are a welcomed addition to many of our meals here.  I usually just cut the greens to garnish our dishes but the bulbs are edible also and can be pulled out of the ground and sliced for a stronger onion flavor.

Ours came from the old house,  where the husbands brother kept a few on the window sill in the kitchen.  They were pretty sad looking when I decided I should tend to them and planted them outside in their own little bed ( the brother was sure I was killing them ).  Three years later we have a healthy happy bed of Egyptian walking onions.   They need little care,   just a bit of water if things have been dry and maybe some light weeding.   They will spread if they have the room.  To keep ours contained for the first few years I planted them in an old wagon wheel that we had found here.  With mowing they never escaped until last fall when I decided to  expand their area out a few feet with stones.  They were already walking out of their wheel late last fall and filling in the new area with the seeds that form on top.

If your looking for Perennial Vegetables that will come up every year and be amazingly useful and hardy this one is a must have ! and thankfully easily found online.  I have never seen them in any nursery here.
