Egyptian walking tree onions - Medbury Gardens

Egyptian walking tree onions - Medbury Gardens

Details  These are hardy perennial onions that are very prolific, they do best in a well-drained, moist garden bed, bulbils are best planted from March till Sep.
Breeding work on the onion is currently being done, the Egyptian Walking tree onion is a F1 clone which is a cross between the Walsh and a standard brown onion, through bulbil removal and hand pollination 13 seeds were produced in 2015, from those 13 only 5 seedlings germinated, one of those later died. During that summer the four remaining plants grew and divided given me 23 new base onions, these were then replanted out separately and its hoped they will produce more seed. The goal is to develop a open pollinate walking onion that is grown from seed and not bulbils

Bulbils have sold out, more should be available Feb 2018 .

Florence Fennel


Florence fennel is a cool-weather perennial grown as an annual. Grow fennel in full sun. a wonderfully ornamental vegetable, is grown for its swollen leaf bases or ‘bulbs’ and edible leaves. When using in salads, the flavour can be improved by slicing the bulb and putting it in a bowl of water and ice cubes in the fridge for an hour. Plant fennel in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Prepare the bed in advance by working in aged compost. Fennel prefers a soil pH of 5.5 to 6.8.
Leek - Perennial Leek Medbury Gardens

Leek - Perennial Leek Medbury Gardens

Details  Forms large clumps of thumb size stems which have a stronger leek flavour than standard leek though they are a bit more finicky when harvesting.
Best sown in spring forming clumps by late summer/autumn, if left in the ground through the following winter the clumps will form a mass of corns meaning the perennial leek will become permanent and difficult to eradicate.Some gardeners may prefer its perpetual feature while others prefer it as a annual vegetable by insuring its harvested before winter. Due to poor seed set there is only a small seed available, but bulbs can be ordered instead. LAST SUMMER SAW POOR SEED SET, HOPING FOR BETTER THIS SEASON

Onion - Pukekohe long keeper - Medbury Gardens

Details  A long storing brown skin onion that can grow up to 800grams.

Selection work involves sowing seed early spring so as to give the onion the longest possible growing season, this way the idea is to expose any onions that have a undesirable tendency to bolt to seed in its first year, its the second year that the onion is used seed production. After the first years growth, only onion that have excellent size and shape are stored for winter, springtime the first 50% that start to grow green shoots while still in storage are discarded and the remain 50% slow bolters planted back out from seed production. The slower the bolters the better the keeping ability.
