    Alliums are incredibly popular and come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. In this collection we have brought together two very pretty forms, which have a simple elegance, and work equally well in pots or a sunny border.

    This 'Dainty Allium' collection is available in two sizes. You can buy 1 collect ion 45 bulbs (25 A. roseum and 20 A.cowanii), for only £9.99, or if you buy two collections, you will receive another collection free - that's 135 bulbs, (75 A. roseum and 60 A. cowanii) for £19.98 - a saving of £9.99!

  • Allium roseum
    A variable plant, which produces very pretty, open clusters of pale to rich pink flowers above the strap-shaped foliage. Flowering in late spring or early summer, it is useful for bridging the gap, creating pockets of colour when there is often a bit of a lull in the garden. Plant it into patio pots, or create drifts through the front of the border where it will slowly spread to form good-sized colonies.

  • Allium neapolitanum Cowanii Group
    Open clusters of pure white flowers appear in late spring or early summer, creating a soft, lacey effect. The flowers last for ages after being cut and the bees will find them very attractive, so try to plant them in large numbers. In smaller gardens, they look great in pots where they can sit on a sunny patio.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10-15cm apart. Avoid excessive mositure from late summer when they become dormant. Over-large clumps can be lifted and divided in autumn or spring.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
