The flower stems of these Alliums are starting to rise up! I've not even had all my daffs out yet?! 😁 #newgrowth #allium

Wow! I will only see mine late May. I guess that means bearded irises should be coming up for you too? 🤔

I love Allium, especially the huge round ones that are even lovely when they are dried out and the one called something like Nectoscorum (or something similar) that the bees love! Yours look like they are coming along well😀

Indeed Lynda - stocked up on a load of bulbs last autumn so can't wait - got a good mixture of small ones, large fluffy ones and large spikey ones 👍🏼 @lyndag

Love Alliums 😍 I've got purple sensation & Christophii which were enormous last year! Flowered for an age & looked beautiful dried as well. 👍🏻

Oh no, really? That's probably for the better - I think I might have planted these a little too shallow. I've already got 4 different Allium varieties all about 3-4 inches above the soil. But no sign of my daffs popping through yet 🤔 @justin

Well my daffs and tulips are making a go of it so maybe I planted my alliums too deep 😂

Found these in a pot that I'd brought from a previous house. Completely forgot about them as it was stuck round the back of the shed! I need the pot, so I've replanted these directly into the border. Planted 19th November. 🤓
