How to Regrow Green Onions: 3 Simple Steps to Growing Green Onions at Home All Year

How would you like to never have to buy green onions again and have something pretty in your kitchen or on your patio? Green onions can be regrown over and over again either outside in a garden or in a planter inside or outside. Here's how to make this miracle happen:

  1. When cooking with green onions, cut the ends off, making sure not to remove the roots.
  2. Push the root end down into the soil, leaving the top exposed.
  3. Water the green onions often, and continue to add new cuttings where there's space in the container.

The onions grow really fast – you will notice growth almost every day. When the green onions are at your desired length, simply pull them up, wash them off and cook with them. Be sure to save the root so you can start all over again.

I didn't realize this, Donna John ! You just gave me my next gardening project, thank you. :-)

I've been doing it for a while now. Have some ready to eat I need to pull this week. It's fun watching them grow. I used to just push them down into another plant's pot, but now they've graduated to their own. :) I also have done this with turnips (you eat the greens that grow on top). I tried romaine lettuce, but didn't have much luck. May try again. Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds

I do this all the time on my windowsill! And they are such a great thing to have around to add to so many meals. Trying with celery now...
