Money Saving Tips: Regrow Green Onions

Are you looking for some simple ideas to save money? We have simple solutions that you can easily apply to your lifestyle to save money!

Now that your garden is in full swing you can sit back and watch the fruits and veggies grow. Did you know that when it’s time to harvest, there are a couple of different veggies that will continue to grow if you put them in water!? Yes, that’s right…all of your hard work will last you through the year. Earlier in the year I showed you how to regrow lettuce, and this week’s garden tip & tidbit is to regrow green onions. I find myself using green onions a LOT as a garnish on dinner items, and I love them in a fresh salad.

So, next time you chop green onions for a soup, salad, or other yummy dish…save the bulbs! It’s quite simple to regrow them! Here’s how:

  • Trim down to about 2″ above the bulb
  • Fill a container with about 1″ of water. (Pictured is a bowl, but I have also used a canning jar so that it can easily sit next to the window.)
  • Set the green onions in the container and allow it to regrow in a sunny area!
  • Regrowth can take a little bit to get going, so you may want to regrow several bulbs at the same time.
  • Make sure to freshen the water every few days.
  • To enjoy the green onions you can just trim off what is needed and stick it back in the water for even more regrowth!!

    They also work if you plant them in the garden. I have green onions planted and also the base of some celery that I started inside in water like the onions you’ve done.

    I’ve been doing this with green onion for a week and a half now. It’s working great. That’s awesome to be able to try celery also. I’ll have to do that.
