A patch of this scallion is a year-long garden friend.
Scallions are an indispensable, easily grown part of any garden. Chopped and sprinkled on nearly any prepared dish, they make all flavors pop. A bed of scallions will prove useful to you all season.
In mid-winter, when it's still too early for most seed-starting, scallions are happy to get a jump start indoors. They can be transplanted anytime the ground can be worked and multiply by division naturally if left unharvested. Overwintered scallions emerge powerfully after frost, their deep green spears a reassuring sign of spring. Starting a scallion bed is a journey worth taking.
