I just became aware of this interesting plant but it seems there has been a crop failure for the seed onions this year. I am very interested in trialling them this season so if anyone has extra they wouldn’t mind sharing I would be very grateful.
More than happy to pay postage and the equivalent that it would have cost me from a seed company if it was possible to get them.
I appreciate your time.
Hi Belinda, been pondering all day as to whether Potato Onions are the same as Bunching Onions? I grew some given to me last year, put a small bulb in the ground and each bulb then grew several more around them. If they are the same, I actually have quite a few.
Unfortunately not. Bunching onions are a spring onion type onion. I have a growing number of them in both red and green because they are great.
Potato onions are a bulbing variety. I saw somewhere, when I was frantically looking for retail suppliers, they are actually a bulbing variety of the French Eschallot.
**That said you mentioned putting bulbs in the ground.. does what you have look like a spring onion or a standard onion.
Small Onion 🙂
