Allium senescens - potted

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : available all year
This is one of my favourite Alliums, low growing with narrow, tidy semi-evergreen leaves and masses and masses of small lilac flowers all summer. It flowers for such a long time, providing for bees day after day. Plant it in full sun, in a well drained place, atop a wall or in the rock garden is great. It soon forms a good clump.

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.
