Everlasting Onions

When you buy your next bunch of spring onions, don't throw out those healthy roots, plant them in old milk bottles made into pots, or any other pots you may already have.  Using the milk bottles you can use another one as a saucer and because it is as big as the other the mosquitoes cannot get to the water to breed.

If you just snip the tops off as you need them the onions will keep growing. This works for chives too, just use a pair of scissors to snip what you need and leave the rest. It saves you buying a new bunch each week, they don't keep well and if frozen are only good as an ingredient in a casserole.
