Flowers And Seeds Of Spring Onions.

Since I took up gardening, I have learned many amazing things. I get to see the plants bud, and the buds turning to flowers. I get to see how the flowers look like and then the flowers turning to seeds. And then I am able to use the seeds to grow new plants again. My most recent excitement was from my spring onion plants.

It all started when I found 2 big onion bulbs with green shoots sprouting out. I planted these 2 bulbs in a shallow pot in my garden. I intended to use the spring onions for cooking purposes but I never get to harvest and use the spring onions.
 The spring onions from the 2 big onions started to bud. I have seen these little buds of some of the spring onions we bought from the market. The buds were enclosed with a translucent membrane.
 I didn't harvest the spring onions and left them in the pot to grow. One day the little buds broke free from the translucent membrane.
 Everyday I get to see nature at work
 Then the little buds opened into little pretty flowers.
 These flowers may not be bright or striking but they are pretty.
This cluster of tiny flowers grow on the tip of the flower stalk.
 After the flowers started to dry up, I thought to myself that these must be the seed pods. It turned out that my guess was correct. 
 I waited till the seed pods started to reveal the black seeds inside.
Before the seeds are lost, I quickly collected them and these are the tiny black seeds of the spring onions. I intended to germinate these seeds soon and then wait to see what happens. I hope to update you soon in the near future.

  6. Oho I always thought there must a trick to this!! The onions I grow just sprout up and if I don't use the spring onions, the whole thing dies. I thought there MUST be a way for them to procreate the species haha. Hmm but I haven't had any of mine sprout buds though.

    1. This is the first time I left the spring onions to buds and then flowered. Now I am curious to see whether the seeds will germinate and then grow into onion bulbs.

  15. I have never seen roses like this, they are so frilly! The onions, will they have a white bulb that you can eat? Does that come after or before the seeds? You are now an expert! I must ask you all my gardening questions!
