Finishing the conversation about the types of perennial onions that can provide gardeners and summer residents with an early harvest of vitamin greens, and which, unfortunately, are not yet common enough in the beds in the North-West region, I will tell you about angular and oblique onions. It is also called charcoal onion, mouse garlic. In the wild, it is found in wet meadows and dry slopes, on sandy soil, or in a garden bed, but already cultivated.


The plant consists of a bunch of 5-6 bright green linear narrow leaves, which are shorter than the stem. They move away from a small bulb attached to a creeping rhizome. Onions are sitting close together. Peduncle 35-40 cm high, angular, thin. Flowering begins in mid-June. The inflorescence is small, hemispherical, the flowers are pink-purple. During flowering, the plant is decorative. Seeds are black, angular, small. They have a high germination capacity and keep it for 3-4 years. In culture, when propagated by seeds, the number of bulbs in the nest can be 15-20, and the number of leaves - 80-100. In mid to late May, you can carry out the first cutting of the leaves. The greens of this type of onion are valued not only for their pleasant delicate taste, but there is evidence that, due to its biochemical composition, it contributes to the protection of the body from cancer.

Angular onions are cold-resistant, hygrophilous, resistant to disease.

Its seeds can be sown in early spring, in the second half of summer or in autumn. Seeding rate - 0.8-1 g / m². You can also grow it in seedlings. Care consists in loosening, weeding, watering, feeding. If necessary, thinning is done, separating, like chives, part of the bush. After the nest grows, the distance between plants in a row should be 15-20 cm.

Angular onions can successfully take their rightful place not only in the garden, but also in a flower bed in any flower garden and on an alpine slide. Both animals and children love him.

Oblique bow

Oblique onion (see fig.) Has a single oblong-ovoid bulb, 2-3 cm in diameter. Outer scales are leathery, splitting along, red-brown; inner scales are juicy, pale purple. The leaves are flat, linear, in the amount of 6-9 per child, with smooth edges, narrowed towards the top. Leaves length 20-35 cm, width 1-2 cm.

The seed arrow is high, 70-90 cm (sometimes up to 150 cm); the thickness of the arrow in the lower part is 1-1.7 cm and in the upper part 0.2-0.3 cm. The stem is about half covered with smooth leaf sheaths. Inflorescence is a spherical, multi-flowered umbel, 3-5 cm in diameter, consisting of 80-150 greenish-yellow flowers. The seeds are hard, leathery, elongated-triangular, black, somewhat larger than that of the batun, - 1 g contains 350-400 seeds. The percentage of their setting and germination are high.

The oblique onion is a mountain plant by origin and, under cultural conditions, retains some morphological characteristics inherent in highland plants. In particular, his flower buds are laid in autumn and they are well protected by juicy scales.

Oblique onion grows well in the conditions of amateur vegetable growing. In culture, he has hidden opportunities. The bulb becomes larger - more than 4 cm and weighs 40-50 g, the number of leaves and their size increase.

Plants prefer it with light texture, loose, fertile, well-fertilized and sufficiently moist soils. It works well on humus soils, well filled with organic fertilizers.

This type of onion reproduces well by seeds. In the first year, weak leaf growth and slow bulb growth are observed. By the end of the first growing season, seedlings have 2-3 leaves and a weak root system. In the second year of life, growth is much faster. By autumn, the bulb reaches a diameter of 1 cm. The flowering of plants begins in the third year. It comes by the end of June, and in the second half of August, the seeds are fully ripe. The productivity of plants in the third year is 2-3 kg of leaves from 1 m2.

When propagating by seeds, it is recommended to sow freshly harvested in autumn or early spring of the next year. This is due to the fact that the seeds are covered with a dense shell, which makes it difficult for them to germinate. Before winter, it is better to sow seeds in early October before the soil freezes. 1 m? sow 0.8-1 g of seeds. Sowing an ordinary one. The distance between the rows is 40-60 cm. The oblique onion tolerates transplanting well at any age. You can grow it through seedlings.

Caring for this onion is not difficult - accurate systematic loosening, weeding, watering and feeding. In early spring after the growth of leaves for the formation of more powerful greenery - nitrogen fertilizers, in the fall - phosphorus-potassium fertilizers.

2-3 years after sowing the seeds, it is better to use only the green mass of plants for food and only in the fourth year dig it out together with the bulbs. Then the bulbs can be used for vegetative propagation.
