Regrowing Scallions

I am asked quite often if it’s true putting a scallion in a bit of water that it will regrow.  I always do this during the winter as it’s an inexpensive way to have scallion greens throughout the winter when your garden is not producing.

Place the white ends in a cup of fresh water and change it every couple of days.  Chop what you need and in a few days it will sprout again and grow.

These 2 scallions were first used in mid December.  I have since been using just these two when I need scallion greens.

You can see where I have chopped them and the new growth.  This was 4 days after I used them.

This picture is 11 days later.  They are almost full grown.  The one laying down I was using tonight and started to chop it but decided to put it back in for the picture.

Give it a try for fresh scallions all winter 🙂

  2. We grew celery from scraps this year and I grew onion greens from an onion that had sprouted in our pantry. Thanks for sharing at the Homestead Blog Hop!
