Evergreen Scallion

Allium fistulosum

A scallion patch is easy to grow and useful nearly all year round.

A patch of this scallion, not actually a young bunching onion but a member of a separate, non-bulbing species, is a long-time garden friend. In mid-winter, scallions are happy to get a jump start indoors; they can be transplanted anytime the ground can be worked; they multiply by division naturally if left unharvested; and they overwinter with no special care, emerging powerfully after the ground thaws, their deep green spears a reassuring sign of spring. Chopped and sprinkled on nearly any prepared dish, they make all flavors pop. In short: starting a scallion bed is a journey worth taking.

Direct sow beginning 4 weeks before last frost, or start your first round of scallions indoors up to 12 weeks before last frost date. Make succession sowings every 3-4 weeks for scallions all season. A good fall crop can be started about 3-4 months before first autumn frost. If overwintered, they will emerge in early spring. Scallions are tolerant of less-than-ideal conditions.
