I love scallions. So when I came across a blog post a couple of years ago about regrowing scallions, I tried it. And have continued to grow them.
Regrowing scallions is super easy.
– a knife
– a container
– small rocks (optional)
Here’s how I do mine.
1. Get some scallions. Mine are a bit limpy because I put them in the fridge and left them there for a couple days.
2. Cut off the tops. I just eyeball it and cut in the light green area.
3. (Optional) Put small rocks at bottom of container. The first time I re-grew scallions, I didn’t add rocks to the bottom of my container. The scallions grew fine, but I found that after a while the bottoms got soggy from sitting in the water. With the rocks in the bottom, the scallions avoid Soggy Bottom Syndrome and last longer.
I didn’t have anymore rocks for the batch of scallions I did this morning so I borrowed some beads from my youngest daughter’s bead stash. I figure they should work the same as the rocks.
4. Put your scallion stubs into your container. Add enough water to reach the roots. Put them where they can get some sunlight. I keep mine on a window sill in the kitchen.
5. Admire your work. The tall sprouty ones are the scallions in the previous photos. The stubby ones are scallions I planted this morning. They grow pretty quickly.
