Having a little mini garden in the winter appeals to me.
I read somewhere that if I planted the white bulb end part of a green onion (after chopping and adding the green part to whatever it is I'm cooking, of course) it would grow!
I had to dig around a little in my gardening shed, but found a partial bag of potting soil.
That I poured into window boxes I have setting in our kitchen bay window.
Then I just pushed the white onion bulb into the soil and watered.......
Few More Tips:
- The container should be deep enough for bulbs to be covered in dirt.
- Make sure the container is placed so it has exposure to bright light and has soil with excellent drainage.
- Choose an onion variety that produces small heads, as vegetables in containers have limited room to grow.
- Monitor the soil closely and water only when the top half-inch feels dry. Avoid letting the soil dry out completely.
