A Delicate Spring Onion

All about &

When I first found the spring onion it had been chopped down, almost to the root. The rest of it ended up in a salad and this barely two inch rejected portion was headed for the bin.

A few days earlier I’d received a selection of tiny rubber plant pots, called root cups. I decided I would try to re-grow this broken spring onion. I filled the root cup with water, wedged the spring onion in there, and placed it on my window sill.

Almost two weeks later, it is ten inches tall. Each day I notice how it has grown a little since yesterday, and how it has leaned a little more toward the light. My delicate spring onion.

What next?

1. Make a delicious spring onion salad.

2. Use a spring onion root to grow more spring onions.
