Large assortment of Allium Flower Bulbs

Alliums are highly ornamental members of the onion family. They grow from bulbs or rhizomes. Flowers are borne on leafless stems from late spring until early summer. The flowers on some varieties such as Allium Gladiator are very large, they are perfect for both fresh and dried flower arrangements.

How to plant the larger Allium varieties

The large ball shaped alliums such as Aflatunense - Gladiator - Mount Everest - Giganteum - His Excellency - Allium nigrum and Schubertii all produce large flower heads and have big bulbs, much bigger than the small bulb Alliums such as Moly and Rosenbachianum and Oreophilum they are the small Allium bulbs ranging in bulb size between 4 - 7 -8 cm ) That's why the care instruction for the smaller ones in under miscellaneous bulbs.

The large allium bulbs are planted best in a protected location as the big flower heads will catch wind and damage the flower heads. Plant them at a depth of 10 - 12 cm. (4-5").

Plant them in the prepared location and place the pointed tip upward and press them down gently. Break up the topsoil into finer soil (remove clumps) and replace the soil gradually over the planted bulbs. Always water well after planting. Give a mulch on top of the planting area. In early spring when the sprouts become visual fertilize with some organic fertilizer. We recommend a mulch over the newly planted area. As soon as you see a sprout emerging depending up on the location you might want to place a cane next to the stem for protection.

Place the cane a bit away from the centre of the plant or else you might force the cane into the bulb. Remove the dead foliage after the plant has flowered and the stem has wilted down. Mark the location for protection of the bulb. The plant will emerge again next season.
