I grow a product which I know as multiplying onions. These produce small bulblets on top of growing leaves which I retain for seed. This seed in due course produces a cluster of around 5-6

Very interesting - thanks for sharing. I just grow shallots. Plant 2-3 together and they produce up to 10-15 stalks, eat in about 6-8 wks.

I haven't bought scallions for years. I just cut off the bottom half cm with the roots, replant roots, and they grow again. Maybe I should get some new ones, just for fun. I also have 2 types, one with just one bulb, the other multiplying like yours. Just divide the bulbs and replant. They will form new clusters.

I have used bulbs from one year to the next for 40 years.
