Spring Onion Bunching Ishikura

Overview

Botanical Name: Allium fistulosum

A wonderful type of salad onion that does not bulb but forms long white stalks. Most of the plant can be eaten with very little waste. Quick to mature, they are long-lasting and can be left to make larger stems without losing their flavour. Will do best on well-dug, manured soil in a sunny position.

We hope you enjoy these spring onion seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
