Small wonder: Autumn scallions
9 September 2008 2 Comments
Last weekend, I found some scallions at the back of my fridge, slightly forlorn and totally forgotten. Many of the outer leaves had dried up, and all the stalks had shrunk to half their original size. I salvaged what green was left for the meal I was having and chopped off the rooted end. Without thinking too much about it, I stuck them into a small pot of compost and put it on my window sill.
Four days later, the signs of growth, as you can see, are palpable.
What conditions can we provide for the seeds we want to grow?
