How to Regrow Green Onions

Save Money by Regrowing Green Onions

Save money and start your own scallion plot in your kitchen that provides fresh flavor whenever you want it. The tasty goodies actually regrow quite quickly, making it a fun kitchen-counter DIY that you'll really enjoy. And it is so easy — no potting soil (or green thumb) required! Here's what to do:

  1. The next time you're chopping green onions, hold onto the white ends with the bit of root still attached. Place in a small glass jar, and cover the bases with water. Here's what our onions looked like at the end of day one:

  1. Place in a sunny spot, and within a few days, you'll see shoots starting from the scallion bases. Keep the roots covered with water as they grow. After three days, our green onions really started taking off!

  1. After a week or so, you can begin harvesting your green onions. To use, remove a green onion from the jar, cut away the end (just like you did in step one), gently rinse the roots, and place back in the glass container, refreshing the water. They'll keep growing and growing — and growing!
