Allium giganteum - 3 BULBS (Medium Bag)

Plant type: Bulb

RHS Award of Garden Merit
Availability : Order now for Sept/Oct delivery
One of the grandest alliums - giant pale-purple flowers up to 8” across on tall stout stems. A reliable and stately statement for the border – underplant with many of the shorter forms such as ‘Purple Sensation’ for an excellent effect.

As a rule of thumb, bulbs should be planted in a hole, the depth of which is around 3 times the height of the bulb. We usually dig our planting holes a little deeper than this and then fill the base with some fine grit which helps with drainage directly under the bulb. Never plant at perfectly measured distances apart as this can look artificial – for smaller bulbs we plant in clumps of five to nine in a staggered group so that they look more natural when they flower. For full tips on planting bulbs please click on the ‘cultivation guides’ tab on our home page.
