  • Yes they've been a great success. Can't say the same about the walking onions. All that rain rotted their roots and most have died. A couple left may survive but mostly when plants get root rot it's the end of them. Hopefully no more flooding rain

  • Nice work Dave!  I have some in pots and some in the ground but they are tiny yet. 

  • Started of with a dozen perennial leeks and now I have heaps. All the mature ones have lots of babies growing from them so they really do multiply. Next year will be able to harvest as many as I want. Great plants

  • Boonies seeds. 

  • Where from?


  • Nice.  I have ordered:


    collard greens

    5 walking onion bulblettes

    perpetual spinach and 

    lebanese cucumbers.

  • Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the videos, they are great.  I would love to grow some.  I really like using perennial plants, as it looks like you can just harvest them when you want.

  • Hi Vivieene

    Love that name by the way. Perrenial leeks you can see here  Once planted they keep multiplying so you don't have to keep replanting and Walking onions you can see here  Another one that once planted keeps going forever. Buying is a problem but I can let you know if you're still interested
