Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Allium Bulbs

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.


Aftercare Advice

  • Plant Alliums as soon as possible in autumn so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Water frequently and ensure pots don’t dry out.


Cutting Back

  • The leaves of Alliums die back at flowering time and can be removed when this happens to keep them looking tidy.
