Welsh Onion (Allium fistulosum)

Reliable and hardy herbaceous perennial onion forming clumps of bulbs around 1.2cm big. Produces growth from early spring through to autumn.

Tolerant of most soil types but does like a sunny position and moist soil.  Growing to about 50cm tall with pretty flower heads in summer that are great for attracting bees.

Leaves and bulbs can be harvested – use the leaves like spring onions – harvest a few times a year, allowing the plant to recover, the bulbs use as small onions – harvest late summer/autumn.
