Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Allium siculum syn. Nectaroscordum siculum, Allium nectaracsardium, Allium bulgaricum

Oooh, this is exciting! The first #honeygarlic is just starting to open. I’m sure there are more in the garden this year than last year and I know I didn’t plant new ones in the autumn.......or did I? 🤪 #nectaroscordum #fairycastle #bulb #mygardentoday 29/04/2019

A fairy castle amongst the roses! Isn't it weird the way the flowers hang down but the seed heads stand to attention? #mygardentoday #seedheads #summer

You might be right, Sylvia! I usually cut the seed heads off but I'm going to leave them this year and watch what happens @sylvietee

I wasn't sure what to do with mine Barbara as it's the first time I've grown them ......quite fascinating aren't they :)

I vote we leave them on, Pauline, and then compare notes later in the year. With luck we'll get them popping up all over the place next year!!! #maybefreeplants @flof1952

First year for me too @jacaranda @flof1952 I'm for leaving the seed heads on too

I'll second free plants anytime Barbara ......just tied them up and will leave them intact. Compare notes later then :)
