Thanks for the reminder, I need to get my bunching onion (scallion) seeds sprouted!
Right now they are mostly flowering.
I harvest as cut-and-come-again, rarely dig up the bulb.
If I lived in a climate with hard freezes, after my last harvest I would plant some of the bulbs in a flower box and put it on the window for fresh herbs in winter and then have a jump on season when it's time to plant out in spring.
Also, bunching onions are easily grown from leftover scraps of storebought bunching onions.
Mine came from bunches I picked up at the farmers market or korean grocery.
Much faster than growing from seed, but I guess it depends on how much you want to grow.
