Keep the soil moist by providing about 1” of water per week and watering 2 to 3 times per week. And put the planter in a warm, sunny location. Green onions prefer full sun and warm to cool temperatures between 55°F and 65°F.

Harvest Stems & Bulbs

You can harvest the green stems at 6” to 8” tall. Cut the stem for immediate use. Leave approximately 3” of the stem so the plant will stay healthy and continue to grow.
