Just wondering if I cut off the green tops for stir fry as suggested it does not hurt the bulbs growing?

Your bulb depends on the sugars developed by the leaves - so if you cut the greens to eat you are compromising the bulb. The bulb will still form when its ready, but it will be smaller

Maybe try shallots - easy to grow and can grow most of the year.
