Janet, they produce a bulb very like a shallot. Most years, they put up a ‘flower’ stalk with little bulbs rather than flowers. As these mature the stalk falls over under the weight and the little bulbs take root where they land. In this way, over time, the plant can spread. It is said to walk! I haven’t checked mine recently but if they have any of the little bulbs I’ll pop some in the post for you. I’ll check tomorrow.

I got them under the name Allium cepa var. viviparum but it seems also for sale under A. proliferum
Tree onion, top-setting onions, walking onions, or Egyptian onions
Sorry I am not allowed to ship some to you

how exciting! A few years ago I thought of doing seed, but never got round to it. There was some info on the web i read at the time. I'm not sure of the pollinators. i the flowers were emasculated then hand pollinated, i would think the chances of an unplanned cross would be low.

I've had this on a few plants and have never had the curled growth recover, I have however had luck with new growth. Just my 2c

I used lime sulphur as a miticide because it's what I had at the time.

Fractionally off topic, horse manure is notorious for killing worms in the garden, from when the horses are wormed.

I have read that however I'm not concerned about the load of manure I picked up. It was absolutely chock-a-block full of worms. It was ridiculous...

Thanks Grub. Will investigate treating for mites. I think I have some soap spray stuff I bought a couple of years ago.

My manure source has also just confirmed that there is no spraying in the paddocks that the houses are kept
