Description: We love these onions. They are the size of Spring Onions if grown well, they keep on multiplying like chives, and they are able to be picked all through the Summer when the Welsh Bunching onions are flowering. They die down in May when the Welsh Bunching Onions come into their own again. You can pick big handfuls every day and use them whenever an onion or chives are required. We always use them raw.

Planting Instructions: Do best in light, well drained, but heavily composted soil. Clumps will increase in size and can be divided each year to provide new clumps. Add new compost when divided and replanting.
