    I've got several sets i've harvested and these are Organic. The Walking onion is very prolific and will come back every year..make sure you have a large bed for them. They are a green onion and you can harvest them twice a year.

    One clump of bulbs (that's about 5 bulbs or so)for $7 and that includes shipping. I accept paypal or money order. PM me for more information.

    I have some I was given when I moved to a new house after having my kids. I actually harvest them as needed, year round. I do let some of them be, in the spring and summer, so that they make babies...

    Plant them around your rose bushes and they make the rose bushes healthier! They drive away many bad guy bugs...

    Yeah, they are almost a functional weed, if you know what I mean. I love it that they aren't fussy and want to grow!
    These are the only onions we do grow, since they stay good in the ground all winter. Just have to make sure I leave a few for spring!
    I grow chives as my only other 'oniony' plant.

    Stuff a bunch of Egyptians in a chicken and then put the chicken in a crock pot all day with a little water. YUMMY! That broth is to die for...

    blue you can just plant them by your roses..you don't have to eat them if you don't want to..but they are wonderful.

    Wow the bulbs just arrived in today's mail.
    Thank You.

    Now, remind me: can I pretty much put them anywhere in the garden and then move them if/as/when I have a better idea where I am going to want them to stay? I sort of got it that they aren't particularly fussy???? But if that's wrong, let me know.

    Thanks again

    Susan

    You know, that was just dumb of me. I just went back and read through the thread and the answers to all of my questions are there: yup....easy....anywhere....

    LOL
