Allium speciality

Alliums with a difference, some are edible, allium babingtonii, common name 'Babington's leek' produces edible shoots, while the bulbs of Allium tuncelianum are also edible. These are just two examples, many others have culinary uses. Some such as Allium senescens purely produce flowers that are irresistible to Bees and Butterfly's, plus it grows from a rhizome, not a bulb. Many flower well after standard types, all add something different to a garden.

We are currently planting up all our remaining spring flowering bulbs, at the moment orders can still be placed for items still listed as 'in stock'. Our website is up to date with current stock levels.
