Regrowing Green Onions
It works!!!! For everyone that saw my blog on Regrowing Celery and told me you can do it with Green Onions too, thank you, are right! When we buy Green Onions from the grocery store, I keep them in a glass with a little water to keep them green longer. I take a plastic bag and place it over the top of the Green Onions and place a rubber band around the plastic bag and the glass. Then I store them in the refrigerator. This bunch was too old to eat and the greens turned to mush. I really thought there was no hope but lo and behold they still started to grow!
This picture was just one day after cutting them and taking
them out of the refrigerator, they already started to grow!
See the two tiny green stems peeking out of the top?
Now, about five days later they look like this! Isn’t that amazing!
On Sunday I am going to plant the celery and the Green
Onions in containers to see if they will continue to grow. Wish me luck!
BEING A garden lover and having a big garden to tend Id say reading your blog , you dear have what is called green fingers. I too have them as my garden buzzes with sound and plants are King.How I find time for blogging beats all things
Gardening is indeed a labor of love but the benefits of the produce make it all worth the effort!
That’s incredible, I didn’t even know that was possible!! I’ve lost so many of these to going bad, or so I thought. If I have the fridge space when it happens next time (big if) I’m totally doing this. Thanks for sharing this!!
I know isn’t it amazing!
It is…hope I can try it!
Wow awesome Diane and all the very best in this new endeavor. Great post
I’ll be darned!! I just threw some in the trash last week – just think how much they’d have grown by now!!
Next bunch!!! Mine looked so nasty and now there is new!
I plan to do this, this year with the green onions….I think you can grow another pineapple from the top also.
I have never tried the pineapple and we just bought 2! How do you do the pineapple?
Innovative methods 👌👌👌
Wow. I get green onions all the time. I must try. Thanks for sharing!
They starting growing so fast!
Wonderful experience to watch them grow !
Yes and I can wait to use them too!
I have read both your articles about regrowing and am definitely going to give it a try. I have just started growing tomatoes, peas, and strawberries so I am going through a green-fingered phase at the moment!
Wow that’s fascinating!
Wow, wonderful! 🙂
That’s really amazing!
wow so cool!
Planting them in dirt next! Thanks!
I’ve tried that before – just last week was the last try – and they sprout like crazy at first, then turn mushy and smell awful. Maybe I should plant them quicker.
That’s what I’m thinking. Because of all the roots I doubt they even need to be in the water, just plant!
The tall herb keepers are perfect for this. I didn’t know about the celery!
Plants are resilient little things. Neat find! Now I’m going to have to try every vegetable/fruit I have in the kitchen. Lol
Let me know if you find any others that grow.
Wow. I have always wondered about regrowing such things and since we use green onion in most of our dishes. I will be trying this. Now to find the post about Celery.
Type Regrowing Celery in the search box. My celery has a 2nd stalk and my green onion are still going crazy! I need to get them planted!
I love this… I do it all the time. My savouries are loved because of it.
I just transplanted them about 5 days ago and was going to let them get established in pots. Then my wonderful hubby told me he did me a favor and planted them in the garden for me! Two transplants in less than a week and a low of 40 degrees last night should finish them off quite well😞. I have been bringing the pots in at night. Oh well he meant well.
At least he tries. My husband has his evening/nightly smokes at night. Im too busy with cooking and lunch making etc then I go out to water the garden carrying my gallon. Then he offers to help and I want to thump him 😉
Hahaha We love our hubbies!
