Q.Onion Planting

Anonymous added on January 7, 2014 | Answered

We have a store bought onion that we didn’t use soon enough. It has long sprouts growing from the top. My son asked if we could plant it and I didn’t know the answer. Thanks

You can plant it but it won't make other onions. They do get a nice flower and eventually would go to seed, which then you could plant to grow onions in the future.
