Growing Alliums From Bulbs

Learn how to grow alliums from bulbs, for an interesting addition to your perennial garden.

Allium Bulbs should be planted in the fall, before the ground freezes in October or November.

Ideally the bulbs will have a few weeks of growth in the ground before it freezes, to be able to put down some roots before winter.

Plant allium bulbs with the pointy end up, and the small dried roots on the bottom side planted downwards.

It’s important not to plant in water logged soil, as this could cause your bulbs to rot.

A good rule of thumb is to plant allium bulbs at a depth two to three times the size of the bulb itself.

Alliums will bloom at different times, depending on the bloom time for the particular bulb variety that you have planted.
