The bulbs were delivered in excellent condition and after following the planting instructions last October we have seen fantastic results this year. The collection we choose came out at slightly different times so we were able to extend their season. We have had so much enjoyment seeing the ALL the alliums grow and develop into stunning flowers! Even now some of them are going back to seed they are still a charming feature in the garden!
