The stunning heads of alliums are sometimes described as "fireworks, frozen mid explosion" and certainly provide any garden with a dramatic touch.
We have chosen our allium bulbs to provide you with a wide range of flower shape and colour: From the huge star-studded heads of purple allium christophii, to the sunny yellow allium moly, through to the culinary wonders of allium ursinum, to the pure white foamy allium neapolitanum flowers, we're sure you'll be delighted with your selection of allium bulbs.
Alliums do best in a sunny spot in your garden and look wonderful with their tall heads pushing through the foliage of your perennials. Spring and summer flowering alliums are also attractive to a wide variety of bees and other pollinators in the garden. Read our blog post on alliums for more information.
When to Plant Allium Bulbs
The best time of the year to plant allium bulbs is from September to mid November and even as late as the middle of December is acceptable (weather permitting).
Where to Plant Allium Bulbs
Alliums are members of the onion family who love the sun, so it’s worth bearing this in mind when planting your allium bulbs. For best results, alliums will need a sheltered spot to prevent their tall flowers from blowing over with free draining soil and plenty of sunshine.
