The Mediterranean Bells Allium is truly unique and will definitely catch your garden vistors' attention! Its greenish bell-shaped flowers are flushed with purple and edged in white, hanging in graceful clusters. This bulb is patricularly suited for rock gardens and container growing and naturalizes readily. You will not regret planting this beauty! Also known as Allium bulgaricum.

  • Allium require full sun for the best blooms
  • Well drained soil is a must for allium bulbs
  • In heavy, clay and poorly drained soils amend the soil prior to planting. Amend your existing soil by incorporating a combination of top soil, compost, manure, and leaf mold.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 3” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Plant allium bulbs 4-6” deep, with the old roots of the bulb touching the earth, the pointed end should be facing the sky.
  • Spacing will vary based on variety, refer to the Allium packaging for specifics. Plant allium in clusters or space throughout the garden for a neat geometric design element.
  • Immediately after planting, water the allium planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets. After the initial planting bulbs do not require additional watering in fall or winter and prefer to be kept dry.
  • Apply a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

Interesting flowers, but bad plant form

Pros:
Cons:
These bloomed in the first spring. The flowers are nice but the stems and leaves flop all over the ground! The stems flop for a foot and then go up in the air for a foot to the bloom. I saw some in the nearby botanical garden and they had the same poor plant form. None of the leaves stand up.

Pros:
Cons:
I have never grown these before, so not sure exactly what size these should be, but they were in good shape, a little bit of mold on some, but as I ordered these late in the season, it is to be expected. I planted them immediately and will have to wait until next year to see how they fare. I am confident they will grow just fine.

I ordered 2 oriental poppy roots ( which already took off with leaves) and 3 tulip types I won’t see till spring. Was not disappointed with the size of the bulbs. Big, clean bulbs. Came when they said for fall.
