Egyption Walking Onions or Winter Onions
Hello, A friend of mine gave me these uncommon bulbs last October and called them "Winter Onions". He gave me the run down on how they grow a bulb and then make these "sets" on the end of the scallion like stem for replanting. I didn't believe it until I looked them up. He told me to stick them in the ground last fall, said they would develop and then shoot up in the spring; I totally dropped the ball. Now it is 7 weeks before last spring frost and I decided to tray them up with my regular seedlings to get as much root growth as I can before putting them in the garden. I put them in a mix of sphagnum peat moss and worm castings very close together. Keeping them at room temperature right now until they shoot up. Any predictions on how this will work or any suggestions please? Thanks in advance!
