Spring onions do not grow into ordinary onions. They are similar to leek.
The stems of spring onions can be white, red and other colours.

 

They need a sunny location with good garden soil. The soil should not be too heavily fertilised.

 

Spring onions are propagated

  • Generatively by sowing seeds in spring or autumn
  • Vegetatively using the so-called "sets" formed from the cloves which grow in the autumn.
  • By dividing the root ball.
    Cut off the root balls from fresh spring onions with about 5 cm long stems and then plant them. After about a week, leaves should already start growing.
