I am considering dedicating about half of one section of a raised bed to the Red Welsh Perennial Bunching Onion, and wonder if anyone has had experience with this onion? According to the description, the onion develops side shoots that can be used to start new plants so there are always new onions growing. We use a lot of bunching onions, so this sounds like a good way to always have them growing. But then, I am always into trying something new....

Sounds like an interesting onion, and easy to grow.

I planted some of these in my SFG a couple weeks ago. I had Welsh bunching onion and Egyptian walking onion in my SFG a few years ago. Both were tasty (FABULOUS on the grill) and just so darn easy to grow.

As an update to the original post from last year, these onions have grown wonderfully and multiplied over the winter. I can pull a bunch of onions from what was one onion last year and separate one off for replanting and eat the rest of them. They make good green or bunching onions, but are of stronger flavor than the white annual bunching onions I grow from seed. They definitely become a perennial, though, since each one that is replanted this spring will be a bunch of 4 to 6 onions next spring. Some of them also started seed heads, but I cut them off since I don't need any more seeds.  I planted 72 of the seedlings last year, and every one of them survived and multiplied. For this year I plant to keep the same number of plants by replanting one from each bunch when I pull some for salads or sauteing. It is so easy to break one off the bunch and stick it right back in the ground where the bunch was pulled out. I need to work some compost in around the onions, though, to enrich the soil for them.

My take is that for anyone that likes bunching onions, this is a winner. I especially like that they are perennial and don't have to be replanted each year. The hint of red on the base of the onion adds some color to salads, but I wish they had more of a red color as implied by the name of the onion.
