In this dead simple way you can grow spring onions yourself in your windowsill

Must Try

Never throw away the spring onion trimmings! With this you can grow new spring onions yourself in a very easy way. Culy explains how to do that.

Grow your own spring onions

A nice garden, even if it is only a few square meters in size, with all your favorite vegetables, herbs and fruit: who doesn’t dream of that? Nice and fresh from the season and most important of all: self-grown.

Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity, space or time to make this plan come true. What you can do very easily is to breathe new life into your old spring onions, or spring onions that you have used most (except the roots) of. It’s an old trick, but if you don’t know it yet, this will change your life.

Grow your own spring onions

This is how you grow them yourself

If you work with spring onions in the kitchen, you will always cut off the bottom with the roots. If you want to grow new spring onions yourself, make sure you cut off a slightly longer piece, about 5 centimeters.

Simply place the butts upright in a tray or bowl (with a flat bottom) with a layer of water in a sunny spot. Within a few days (often within 10 days!) you will have a delicious bunch of crispy spring onions. Ideal!
