I have been growing spring onions and am not sure whether or not I am regrowing them the best way. I have a few questions.
I have been cutting the spring onions at their base so that the regrow and I don't have to plant more spring onions. Can I keep doing this forever, or will the taste or size of the spring onion start to suffer if I do this a number of times.
I also want to be able to let the spring onions go to seed so that I can regrow them. I have one Spring onion plant that has just developed a 'bud' like object. (Early Spring) Will this flower and seed? If so, how can I get my other plants to do this too?
Can these two methods be used in combination? For example, can I cut the spring onions at the base until taste starts to suffer, then let them go to seed and replant the seeds?
Answers to any or all of these questions would be appreciated.
