Re: Allium .

I love Alium. When their flowering season is over you can harvest the heads, paint them gold or silver, and use them in displays with silk flowers - if you like that sort of thing.

I have some to plant if it ever stops raining! Bought some in Aldi, their bulbs are good, so are Lidl's and cheap too!

Re: Allium .

I can't believe how quick they are growing...apparently the leaves come up first..I'm surprised the frost,when it arrives,doesn't turn them to mush...they must be very hardy,is all I can say.
