HAVE: Walking Onions

Posted by paquebot Z-4b WI (My Page) on

Have 4 different available: Catawissa, Heritage Sweet, and two different Egyptians. Now is the time to plant them.

Everyone knows the common Catawissa. Loads of topsets on hand! Want two dozen? No problem!

More are learning about the prolific Heritage Sweet. This is available as both topsets and bulbs. Both grow fast and sprout real soon after planting.

One of the Egyptians is the common type similar to Catawissa but smaller plant and single cluster of reddish-brown topsets.

The second Egyptian has mostly large purple-green topsets which are indeed big enough for pearl onions. Slower to multiply but the best of the two.

All available for postage and packing. Topsets can be sent in a bubble envelope. HS bulbs would be best mailed in a Ready Post box for protection. (I can get 4 ounces in the cassette size.)

RE: HAVE: Walking Onions

Martin: I know this is from last year's posting, but planted in fall Globemaster received in a library exchange. Now on Allium Forum and would love to receive some topset alliums. Pls. advise in e-mail how you want me to proceed with SASBE or postal box? Need direction here. Had multipliers as a child but have not dabbled until the urge hit me a much older age. Interested in Catawissa or whatever you can spare (I have a very small plot.)


Pls. check out my offer of perennial flower seeds on seed trading forum in exchange for the topsets, and thank you.
