Have you ever tried growing spring onions in buckets? If not, then you should!
And here’s how you can go about it.
I like to use these cheap builders buckets from B&Q as they are only £1 each!
There is no way you could get a plant pot of a similar size for that money.
With them being a bucket, they obviously won’t have any drainage holes in them, so you will need to add those yourself.
Use a drill and put some holes in the bottom of the bucket.
Then fill the bucket up with multipurpose compost.
Spring onions don’t require too much in the way of nutrition so this doesn’t need to be anything special.
Now add your spring onions. These can be purchased or grown from seed.
If growing your own, I recommend you multi-sow them in a module tray.
Add 4 or 5 seeds per module and allow them all to grow.
You then plant the entire clum together and grow them as a bunch.
Water them in well; before you know it, they will romp away.
In a few more weeks, some onions will probably be ready for harvesting.
These are my spring onions as of right now, and I have already harvested a few from the bucket.
I don’t harvest the whole clump at once but rather pick out the biggest ones individually.
This means I get a good harvest and also then allows the smaller ones more space to develop.
This is a really easy way of growing spring onions and with it you can get a steady harvest in any space!
