Green onion seeds gathered and now, sprouted

I have been gathering seeds from my green onions that went to seed in a container a while ago. I had tried to scatter some of them in the garden, to see if they would sprout, but nothing came up — probably due to simply not getting enough water.

This week I took the time to plant some of them in a small container and placed it near the back steps, where it would get constant attention and water. Sure enough, in this more coddled environment, I noticed today that they had started to sprout.

This tells me that, at least, the seeds are viable, which I wasn’t sure about. I think when our Fall and Winter rains come (hopefully) I will scatter more of the seed in the garden proper and see if that gives them enough moisture to fully sprout and grow.

These allium flowers were a happy accident caused when I didn’t harvest all of the green onions when they were young. Since the flowers are so pretty — and the bees seem to absolutely love them — I am more than happy to grow them as an ornamental here in the garden, too.
