Scallions

Do scallions come back every year? What is the purple flower on the top of scallions?

ANSWERS

If they are not dug up, they can come back. The purple flower is just that, the flower of the plant. If you let it go, it will produce seeds.

Can you cut off the sets before they bloom and plant them?

ANSWERS

You shouldn't allow them to bloom (or bolt) as this will lessen the plant's productivity and may cause a bitter taste.

Do You Have to Thin Scallion

Do you thin scallion? I have groups of them coming up from one bulb.

ANSWERS

If you are sure it is from one bulb, then I would not worry about thinning them. But if it is several bulbs bunched together, I would thin them so that the strongest plant will do the best.
