How to regrow spring onions

Method

Cut the green top of the spring onion, leaving 3.5 cm of the white root base intact.

Place the section into the shallow jar and submerge half the plant in water.

Leave in a sunny spot and change the water every other day.

Harvest directly from the jar when ready.

How to regrow lettuce

Method

Cut lettuce leaves, making sure to leave 3.5cm of height on the root section.

Place it a bowl with enough water to submerge the root (around 1cm).

Place this in a sunny location and change the water every other day.

After two weeks, when the lettuce sprouts new leaves and roots you should plant it out into putting soil for prolonged growth

Harvest when the leaves grow to baby leaf size (10cm).
