This is my all time favourite #allium but it’s a real challenge to grow! I’ve tried it in the borders where it flowered once then was never seen again and I’ve tried it in pots where it produced leaves but no flowers. Last autumn I tried again, planting three bulbs in the flower bed close to the patio where I could keep watch over them. Just one has come up but over the past couple of days it flopped over so I’ve cut it and brought it inside. Read more ⬇️
On the plus side I’ve discovered that it has a wonderful fragrance so I’m happy to have it in a vase now. Has anyone had any luck growing these? #allium-schubertii #bulb #trickybutlovely #mygardentoday #cutflower 💚
Yes I’ve grown them Barbara and they’ve always been good, this year nothing and I think it may be because other plants have smothered them and the slugs or snails ate them, I need to go and have a look and see if a I can see any signs of them.
