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.This collection includes 15 or 30 bulbs each of:
- Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation'
- Allium aflatuense (hollandicum)
Our bulb collections will be supplied with each variety bagged individually. To reduce waste, we no longer collate these into a second larger bag. Your delivery paperwork will list details of the collection you have ordered and the varieties included. Our bags can either be recycled or composted (please check bags for details).
This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.
Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.
Removing the foliage once it becomes tatty doesn't appear to affect the bulbs.
