Clumps of bulblets are produced at the tops of long stalks. These root themselves when the stalks fall, and so the offspring "walk" away from their parent plant. These are very ornamental, and children find them fun to grow. Good culinary as well.
Onions can be grown from seed, small bulbs, or transplants.
Soil should be loose, rich and well-drained. They are shallow rooted and need moisture near the surface. Feed these plants regularly, especially early in the season.
