Can be grown from 'sets' ie seedlings brought on earlier. Spring onions are grown close together and harvested before fully mature.
Do not like to be too dry. Best in a sheltered, sunny spot. If you are growing onions from seed, you can use the 'thinnings' as spring onions
Can be eaten raw in salads. Often used chopped and sprinkled on Asian stir-fry.
