    Alliums never fail to impress. They come back year after year, flower over a long period, provide structural interest and will easily fit into any border scheme. No wonder then they are always in big demand by the top designers.

    In each collection you will receive the following:

    25 × Allium neapolitanum Cowanii Group
    Open clusters of pure white flowers appear in late spring or early summer, creating a soft, lacy 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. Grows to 40cm.

    25 × Allium sphaerocephalon
    The small, egg-shaped, claret-coloured flowerheads appear like drumsticks on tall slender stems above strap-like, mid-green leaves in mid- to late summer. Planted en masse in a border in full sun, these diminutive claret flowers look great emerging from a screen of foliage, or against a backdrop of ornamental grasses. They gently fade as summer comes to a close. Grows to 90cm.

    25 × Allium unifolium
    The flowers on this allium are quite papery, which means they last longer then many of the other varieties. In spring the first sign of growth is the appearance of the strappy foliage, which has usually died off by the time the flowers appear in late spring. The pinky purple bell-shaped flowers emerge in clusters of up to 20 at a time on top of single stems. After they have flowered the papery seed heads make a beautiful rattle as they blow in the breeze. The Royal Horticultural Society have also justifiably awarded it an Award of Garden Merit for its garden worthiness. Grows to 30cm.

good selection and success rate


We have a patio with retaining wall and a bed inset into the wall. I have planted grasses (tuenissima) with verbena bonariensis, gaura and alliums amongst the grasses. The idea is that the grasses will eventually fill the bed with the flowers of the other plants showing above the grasses and swaying in the breeze. I planted these alliums late last Autumn and have a 100% success rate with the allium neopolitanum and the allium spaerocephalon (every bulb came up!). The allium unifolium hasn't done quite so well, with around half the bulbs coming up. They may very well come up later or, maybe, next year. All the plants I bought for this bed came from Crocus and all have been very healthy and grown really well. My ground is in full sun and very solid clay. This may help you when deciding if these plants will grow in your soil. I have no affiliation with Crocus, I'm just a fan of the products!

There was a time when alliums were thought of only as vegetables. However, the taller varieties with their huge globe flower heads are now one of the stars of the architectural plant world. The stiff lollipop heads off-setting sharp vertical leaves, tall,

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it

Plan ahead with bulbs

One of the great things about gardening is being able to look into the future with enthusiasm, and part of that is planting now for next spring. A gardener knows, when handling papery brown bulbs, that these insignificant little things will produce early
