I have wanted an tree onion for ages but never see them for sale in the nurseries.
Please can anyone help, I don't mind even if I have to grow from seed or a cutting: The specialist postal nurseries would be expensive I quess, as postage is high for one item.

P.S. Sorry about the onion tree thing LOL!

Thanks! I have done quite a bit of research now but think I will wait till I can swop for them: Not as good as I had hoped.

I have tree onions!! My father grew them and i pinched some from his garden over 10 years ago, which are still going strong. I've kept them in pots but put them in the ground this year when we moved to Ireland. They haven't produced 'top' bulbs this season, prob because of the move, but are growing strongly. I can let you have some bulbils whenever some are produced if you are still looking for them.
