  • 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:

    Salsify, 

    collard greens

    5 walking onion bulblettes

    perpetual spinach and 

    lebanese cucumbers. 

  • I bought my walking onions from the Seed Collection Walking Onion (Bulb) | The Seed Collection Sold out at the moment but it shouldn't be long before they restock.

  • 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   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OEqDpRwyBg  Once planted they keep multiplying so you don't have to keep replanting and Walking onions you can see here  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwCdluOzkuU  Another one that once planted keeps going forever. Buying is a problem but I can let you know if you're still interested
