More Information

Allium Globe Mixture – is a selection of showy, spherical shaped heads. This mixture of alliums will reach heights between 90cm and 120cm, producing heads of around 10cm to 15cm in diameter.

Our Allium Globe Mixture flowers in late spring/early summer, between May and June. They will continue to flower for a couple of weeks. Not forgetting that the allium are a favourite for bees. Read more about the best bulbs for bees>

Broad green leaves will appear long before the flower bud emerges, once the allium is in flower the foliage will start to die back so it is worth trying to hide the foliage amongst shrubs and perennials if you can. Remember that if you want the bulbs to flower the following year you need to leave the foliage, this is so that the leaves can feed the bulb ready for its dormant phase.

How to plant and care for your Allium Globe Mixture bulbs

Plant your Allium Globe Mixture bulbs in autumn, between October and December. Alliums do not like heavy wet soil, but they want to be moist but free draining. Add grit if you think your soil is too heavy. They do like to be in a sunny position. Planting 15-20 cm deep will help keep the tall flower stable.

Alliums are hardy and will flower perennially. You don’t need to lift them although it is good to check on the size of the bulbs during autumn. You can leave in the larger bulbs and take out the small bulblets. This will prevent them getting too crowded.

Alliums originated in mountainous regions in Asia. This is why they like hot summers, cold winters and free draining soil.
