Alliums

I planted about 10 allium Globemasters last year in the green. Divided between 4 rose beds as specimens picking up the purple from the lavender edging . This year they have produced tiny flowers on very tall stems . Soil is well drained they get plenty of sun . Can anyone help please I’d love bigger blooms

    Alliums really need to be planted six inches deep. Otherwise they split into small bulbs, and you don't get the big flowers.  A bit of food when flowering helps the  bulbs grow for next year.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • Many thanks ! They’re not 6 inches deep. Guess it would be best to leave them until autumn until repositioning ? Will definitely give it a go
