This herb dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The leaves of this decorative 'cut and come again' Welsh onion can be used in a similar way to chives (although their flavour has a bit more of a kick), while the shoots (which are not as pungent as onions), taste delicious when added to salads. Simply cut off what you need at the base, and new foliage will soon appear to replace it.

  • Garden care: Easy to grow in a sunny spot, just keep well watered in summer.
