I may need to try these in the ground...if they really do grow in poor sandy soil I may actually have some luck beyond SFG.
Mine were in the ground, good ole clay dirt , and they were goin to town!

Yesterday I clipped the first set of bubils from my walking onions. They're so cute!!! Do I need to dry them before planting or can I just set them in soil, water 'em in, and hope for the best?

SR, have your walking onions recovered or were you able to plant more?  If you still need a topset or two, I'll send you some of these. What a Face

How did you know they were ready to cut off? I've never cut mine off before.

To be honest, it was hardly a scientific conclusion....I was making dinner and needed green onions.  There aren't a whole lot of stalks that didn't have bubils, and I didn't want to weaken the plants. I figured the stalks with topsets were about spent, so I cut and used those. What a Face

Hopefully, I haven't just killed the lot of 'em. No Sad

I doubt you could kill them all off, GB.  They are very hardy.  But they may not spread without your help this year.  As far as I know, the top bubil parts eventually weigh down the stem and the stem bends over.  Once the bubil ball is on the ground it'll start growing where it hits.  That's how they 'walk' around.

I have a question. If I pull up a plant with 3 or 4 onions, do I separate and stick one back in for another multiplying plant? I know the top cluster will eventually grow a new set, but I wondered about the ground sets. Thank you.

I've never found they need any special attention, or anything to regrow. I cut stalks of green for salads and recipes calling for green onions and just toss the little bulbs anywhere. Usually they grow. Or at least some/enough do! I also cut the little bulbs off, peel and use those also. Sometimes I let them get as big as they're going to get and put them on the grill. They're very versatile little suckers!
