More Information

Allium Globemaster has to be one of the most magnificent allium bulbs. Packed with large star shaped flowers of a strong purple colour. The head will keep growing until it reaches around 20cm in diameter, lasting 2-3 weeks. Growing over 1 metre tall these large alliums are perhaps a little more expensive than the mid size bulbs such as Purple Sensation, but they never disappoint with their superior flower power. Plus, because Globemaster bulbs divide after flowering, they put on a fabulous show year after year. They’ll look fantastic with Allium ‘Mount Everest’. 

Alliums are a perennial garden favourite and bees and other pollinators love them. Allium bulbs are easy to grow and undemanding, with a great diversity of sizes, colours, textures, heights and bloom times, giving any garden long-lasting colour from early through to late Summer, followed by attractive seedheads.

Allium bulbs are hardy perennials related to onions, shallots and garlic and sometimes referred to as Ornamental Onions.

How to grow Alliums

Allium bulbs are easy to grow and require very little care. So long as they are given soil that drains well and planted in a sunny position. Plant 15-20cm deep and give the bulbs plenty of room for the broad foliage. The foliage sits at the bottom of the stem but can be quite invasive for nearby plants. Bare this in mind if you are looking to plant in pots.

They will flower in late spring / early summer. Alliums are great for a bit of colour between the seasons and a favourite of pollinators. They’re a ‘must have’ if you are looking to attract bees.

Avoid planting allium bulbs in areas that are regularly cultivated as it is easy to damage them when digging.
