Hi all, I live in Southern Spain and there are many wild garlic/leek/onion (allium ampeloprasum) growing around here - not the elephant garlic variety, but what are referred to here as ajetes, ajo puerro, etc. I'd like to grow them and obviously I can harvest seeds but I was also wondering if the small bulblets under the skin of the bulb and in the roots can be sown also. I can't find any reference to these anywhere. Anyone know anything about this? Many thanks.
Hey Nick :)
I'm not familiar with that exact species, but I have never met an allium you couldn't do that with, if it divides into any parts at all, it will grow off the parts. It might be a bit tricky, but it should be doable.
Hoping this reply attracts others who might know more than me about it!!
