Green Onions Rule!

  

Hey Hamama Friends! 

Our Green Onion Kits are here to add to your easy Hamama gardening at home! Green onion is a very popular ingredient or garnish for so many dishes -  But did you know you can regrow the root ends to get new green onions!? Now Hamama makes it easy as pie.

Our Green onion kit includes a special green onion lid, plastic grow tray, three coconut mats, and easy instructions. Use store bought green onions and save by re-growing them several times! With this kit, the roots grow through the coconut mat which separates the bulb from the water leaving it perfectly dry so it stays fresh much longer! You can also grow a lot more at once in one tray - it has room for 39 shoots!

Why we’re pumped about green onions?!

Nutritionally speaking, some epidemiological studies indicate some associations of Allium vegetable (garlic, onions, shallots, leeks, and chives) consumption with decreased risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. Onions are a significant dietary source of carbohydrates, fiber, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. They also contain a variety of bioactive compounds, including flavonoids, oligosaccharides, arginine, and selenium!¹

I’ve tried several times to get store-bought green onions to grow. It’s almost as if they’re treating them in some way that they won’t because I used to be able to do this easily. Would it also work with your set-up to plant green onion seeds?
