Hi everyone, so many seeds on the alliums 😅 I think I'll need a giant paper bag for them all! 😃💜 #allium I might sow some but I think they take a while to get going and flower. If anyone wants some let me know.

Are you going to scatter the seed or do them in seed trays? 🤫

comment
anges

I think I'll sow them in seed trays so I can keep my eye on them. I might scatter a few once I know what the seedlings look like - I can imagine I'd pull them up otherwise. I need to read up when to do it etc... 💜 @pelly

I think I’ll do the same. I think it takes at least a couple of years from a quick look at the internet 🤫

The #allium have dried out in the summerhouse. I'm going to spray paint some of them at Christmas 🙂

I’ve done the same with some of mine. I’ve still got a few in the garden too 🌟🌟🌟

I left a few in the garden but they went to mush after the rain 😀 @pelly

Mine look ok but I’ve just noticed they’ve shed a lot of seeds already. I think I’ll pull them today though 👍

Just read they might not come back like the parent plant if grown from seed @pelly https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/popular/allium/growing-guide

#allium Purple Sensation have gone over now. Will dry them and use indoors. Is it a good time to cut them now do you think and let them dry? I like seeing them in the border but the Liatris are in amongst them so I won't have any gaps. #advice

Thanks Sharon (sorry - getting my Sharons and Shonas mixed up! 😄) I keep the leaves on till they've withered away. They're messy but if you underplant with something bushy it can help hide them - forget me nots or cranesbill for example. Look forward to seeing yours soon 😃💜 @sharonhayden
