Bunching onion is simmilar to spring onion, the difference is that it grows like a shrub. Only the greenery is used which can be constantly cut. The plants can be grown as perennial, since the bulbs do not need to be pulled out and the greenery regrows after cutting.
We can sow it any time from arly spring to late autumn, but we should avoid dry and hot months. If we want a strong, proliferating plant, we don't cut it for at least half a year after sowing. If we sow in spring, we start cutting in late autumn. If we sow it at the end of the summer (September), we start cutting at the end of spring next year (May).
