KEEP SOWING SPRING ONIONS
Spring onions are such an easy crop to grow and tend to do well for much of the year so it makes sense to plant or sow seeds regularly. A bunch of five spring onions in the shops will set you back around $3, yet a packet of seed for the same price will give you 600.
To grow your own, sow seeds direct in rows or blocks in a sunny spot, cover with soil, firm down gently and water in lightly using the fine mist setting on your hose.
Seeds will germinate in around 10 days and can be thinned to 2cm apart to give them space to spread out.
