I have a long but shallow planter, maybe only 4 inches deep, that I've successfully grown radishes and spinach from seed in. I was wondering if it's deep enough to grow Scallions (Evergreen Long White Bunching)in? What depth do Scallions require as they mature?

I believe they should be about two inches deep and then mulched over well. You would probably get more detalied/experienced advice over in the Allium forum though.

Good luck:)
