Allium sphaerocephalon - DRY BULBS - Bulk Bag (100 bulbs)

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : Order now for Sept/Oct delivery
One of our favourites & one of the last alliums to flower and will soon naturalise in a sunny border. Very long lasting vivid- purple ovoid heads on wiry stems – appx 1” across. Butterflies & bees love them. Native to the UK though rare – still found in the Avon Gorge in Bristol.

As a rule of thumb, bulbs should be planted in a hole, the depth of which is around 3 times the height of the bulb. We usually dig our planting holes a little deeper than this and then fill the base with some fine grit which helps with drainage directly under the bulb. Never plant at perfectly measured distances apart as this can look artificial – for smaller bulbs we plant in clumps of five to nine in a staggered group so that they look more natural when they flower. For full tips on planting bulbs please click on the ‘cultivation guides’ tab on our home page.
Our price: £10.00
