Either way you choose to start, do it during spring, which is the best time to plant scallions.
You can buy seedlings in plant markets, or even ask someone who also grows scallions. If you can’t find seedlings anywhere, try getting scallion seeds.
Did you know that the more exuberant your seedling, the better it will grow?
To cultivate scallions, you will need a place with sunlight. If you choose to grow it indoors, be sure to place the scallion next to a window so it can get at least six hours of sunlight.
After three months, your scallion will be ready to be harvested. To do so, just cut the leaves, and make sure to leave a space of two inches from the roots, so it can grow back.
Scallion leaves grow fast and can be cut many times. If you plant it at home, share your experience with us.
