Hmm “Popped an Onion end in some water, will plant this week sometime” Hmmm. If one trims the leaves from an onion, and take a bit of the top of the onion, does this start a new plant? OR Could you further describe “Popped an Onion end in some water, will plant this week sometime”? I never thought about using the top as a starter plant, although it does make some sense. Please elaborate.

Well I just use the end of the onion once its been used for cooking, we normally will leave an onion around for about a week and usually by then there will be roots starting at the bottom, in the fridge. So I just finished the onion today chopped off everything – cooked that – and had a tiny, tiny piece at the end and there were a few roots, so I won’t be getting a real chance to get outside and garden till the weekend so to keep it moist, for the most part I am a lazy gardener. { Hangs head } to keep it moist I just had laying around a leftover salsa jar, rinsed it out and put some warm water in and just tossed the onion bit it. As of approx. about 7 or 8 hours there are new roots. I will change the water every day till I can get to put them in soil, so what little flesh of it doesn’t rot.

I am not sure if it starts a full new plant, the same thing with the garlic, I only grow them for the greens. I have never had success getting them to grow underground to make another full garlic or onion.

I love, love, love garlic but it doesn’t agree with me at all, but the greens, will still give the flavor without all the digestive problems, well for me anyway. :)

I use the bottom, I have never used the top, that normally gets eaten :D
