How to regrow food from kitchen scraps

They say there is no such thing as a free lunch. I’m here to prove that wrong, but this free lunch will only consist of regrowth of spring onions.

Okay, maybe it's just a free snack or garnish. But, hey, it’s still free, happy days.

This is SO simple, it takes zero skill. If you are far from green fingered, I promise you can still do this. It's even more forgiving than keeping a succulent- and you only need to think about it every few days for a couple of weeks. If you’ve used up all your maternal plant love by then, you can eat all of the spring onions, or you can snip the regrowth and watch them resprout.
