There are no better value alliums than these two – one in deep, rich purple, the other a more smoky mauve. Mix them up together in the garden and harvest them for inside.

Alliums are incredibly long-lived and flower for ages. The ones at Perch Hill have been coming back year after year for the last 12 years. I love them for adding late spring and summer pizzazz – strong colour and shape to the border, and they are excellent for cutting.

This mix flowers from mid May to June.
