Japanese bunching oinon (Allium fistulosum) has long white stalks and short green tops. It is a bunching type so doesn't produce bulbs but a clumps of long stems even if left in for longer.

No need for successional sowings, just sow in spring and harvest all year. RHS Award of Garden Merit Winner. Grows up to 30 cm tall. Onions have anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties, and also believed to lower blood pressure.

Sow these seeds from early spring outdoors in an open, sunny, well prepared bed.  2 cm deep and leave 40 cm between the rows. Thin out the seedlings when large enough to handle and eat them too. First about 5 cm apart. The thinnings can be used too in salads. Water in the summer during dry spells. Keep the onions weed free during the growing season.
