You'll love this bulb so much you'll want to shout it from the highest mountain! The Mount Everest Allium is a unique allium growing up to three feet in height which produces creamy white flowers. The 4-6 inch spherical blooms are long-lasting, rising above other plants in the garden and emitting a soft, sweet frangrance. Try planting these among other large purple-flowering allium for more variety!

  • 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.

Pros:
  • fast service
  • quality bulbs
  • good customer relations
Cons:
It's too early to rate the performance of the bulbs yet, as they won't bloom until next year. However, the service of Holland Bulb Farms, and the quality of the bulbs are excellent.
