Walking Onion questions
A friend gave me a clump of walking onion...Looks to be about 8 plants, all stuck together. I do not know what variety they are. They have flowers already forming at the top, but they haven't opened yet. Eventually, they will be a purple flower. What do I do with this/these plants? The clump wilted quite a lot after transplanting, but I haven't looked at it in a couple days. Will it recover? Is there any best time to dig up these clumps and transplant them? (My friend will give me more clumps) When it forms the little bulblets, when are they ready to be taken off the parent plant and replanted? How long can they (the little bulblets) be stored before they are no longer good for planting? Should I allow it to bloom, or cut the flower parts off? Are the little bulblets good to eat? Is there any other information I should know about these onions? Thanks very much in advance for any information you can give me.
