I dug some bulbs up a couple of months ago that I thought were the Sicilian honey garlic that I'd planted. I'm beginning to think it was these that I lifted. The leaves were really horrible and stringy and a bit smelly so they had to go. Shame, as they're lovely flowers.

Think the leaves on all the Alliums are messy but it's worth it for the flowers @suzyw

I'll try again for next year but I'll plant them where the leaves will be hidden. I still have two of the honey garlic bulbs to flower. Although I think we're in for heavy rain tomorrow and high winds mid week and one already snapped last week when it was windy. Maybe I'm not destined to have alliums 😂
