We were given a small bunch in March this year, and were told they were Welsh Onions. Planted up in two and three's and today have a full bed of about twenty bunches. I used the stems like chives, and they were delicious, and then the main part in anything that needs onion. Every time I dig up a bunch, I plant a few back and then I find another allotment holder that can use some. They seem to grow like the clappers!!!!
