I planted some Welsh sprouting onions ages ago, literally I would say a year ago. They were overcrowded in their pot so I thinned them out. They seemed to be everywhere in my garden, in the hanging pots (again I thinned them), in their own pots and even nestled between the silverbeet.
They grew huge and side shoots have kept me with oniony goodness whenever I need it. I do buy other kinds of onions but these are great for those last minutes 'oops I forgot my allium' moments
To this day I still have two pots left. Now they have decided to flower!
Can you eat onions after they flower or should I just collect the seed and start the cycle again?
