Egyptian Walking Onion: When can I replant bulblets?

Posted by flowergirl34 5 Upstate NY (My Page) on

Hi! This is my first year with my Egyptian Walking Onion. It has formed its 3 bulblets on each stalk.

They are now drooping all the way over till they almost reach the ground. Can I pick them off and replant them now or do I have to wait a while longer? I'm in zone 5 (if that makes a difference).

And can I separate the 3 bulblets from each stalk or do I plant all 3 in one hole?

I would like to plant the bulbs in different areas of my garden and not have them all clumped together in one place.

I really have enjoyed this plant this summer and don't want to harm it.

Thanks so much for any help on this.

I just let mine drop to the ground.
They take roots right off the bat.
You an pick them and plant them now if you like. They are very easy.
