    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone in the group has herd of “potato onions” (prefer brown) special type of bunching onion.

    Looking to plant some this year so willing to swap or buy with someone.

    I have :

    Rocoto chili ( best chili in the world! :P)

    Water chestnuts

    Comfrey

    Tansy and yarrow seedlings

    Raspberry canes (Nootka and everberring)

    Sweet potato tubers for sprouting (ie not sprayed with sprouting inhibitor)

    Goji seedlings

    Hi there EW,

    I have potato onions. I planted them quite sometime ago now, but I actually thought they had not grown. But upon weeding the patch they were in I have discovered that they are indeed alive. But only seedling size.

    I may be able to get some of the bulbs off my friend who gave me mine. I am not sure. But if you are still after some, I can ask.. let me know 🙂

    Are ‘potato onions’ the same as tree onions? I have lots of those and they bunch up well. they’re not brown though.

    I’d be happy to swap for a few water chestnuts
