The green leaves and stems can be used in the spring-early summer time for stir-frys as they are thick and tender, before the new bulbs form. They are faster growing and tenderer than regular leeks. So I actually use them more as a green than bulbs.They can be planted very closely.

Mine came from a market purchase as well, and each year I get more and more. I saw lots of bulblets sprouted with roots in my garden now, form leftovers of the summer, they will grow to full adulthood in due time.
