Learn top tips for successfully growing perennial walking onions in your garden.

  • Acquire and prepare walking onions for planting.
  • Prepare soil for abundant crops.
  • Interplant walking onions with other plants to save space.
  • Properly plant and care for onion plants.

Gurus are at the Wetherby Edible Forest the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm. Learn more: https://www.backyardabundance.org/guru
