My three favourite alliums for growing in drifts in the garden and for picking for inside. Don't pick the leaves, just the flower stems and put a drop of bleach in the water to extend their vase life and prevent any oniony smell.
Don't chuck the flowers when they go over – hang them upside down to dry for spraying silver for your Christmas tree. This collection flowers from May to July.
This collection contains:
- 15 bulbs of Allium cristophii
- 15 bulbs of Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation'
- 40 bulbs of Allium sphaerocephalon

Removing the foliage once it becomes tatty doesn't appear to affect the bulbs.
