Alliums

Allium bulbs are planted in the Autumn, they like a warm, sunny site and a well drained soil, plant the bulbs about 10 cm's deep. In the Spring the leaves will emerge, which slowly die back as the flower spikes grow, for this reason it is a good idea to plant the bulbs with other plants. Some varieties can start flowering from around the middle of May, others can be as late as August. After flowering the bulbs become dormant during which they do need a period of warm dry rest. We supply the biggest bulbs available to flower in the first year, with good conditions they will provide further, and bigger flowers years to come. The flowers of Alliums are extremely attractive to Bees and Butterflies.

Allium Bulbs are shipped from early September to the end of November, they will flower in the following Summer.

Please note some varieties are sold in packs of 10 bulbs, others are by the bulb, details of pack sizes can be seen in the descriptions.
