Hi: I wonder if you are talking about the "walking" 'nodding" or "Egyption" onions - they are perennial, hardy and multiply. If so, I an help if you live in Canada

Hi Again: I wonder if it would be worthwhile trying to contact Lesley Bremness. She has written a number of books on herbs and used to have a nursery in the UK now I believe she has a company called "Through the Moonlight" garden design. I'l bet she could help you find the onions. By the way she calls them Allium Cepa var. Proliferum. Hope you have some luck finding them.

Blooms, I will try what you suggest, I have found a local garden centre that sell welsh onions (theyre everlasting)but more like spring onions I think as against the shallot type
