Allium query

I want to plant about 30 alliums in a patch which has golden rod growing strongly. If I put the allium bulbs into deep pots, will they transplant successfully in about 2 months time when the golden rod has died down? Thank you ...

    Plenty of wholesale nurseries sell potted alliums for sale to landscapers. There should be no problem doing what you suggest, other than the fact that golden rod does run and you may dig up the alliums when you try to control the its spread. Perhaps split the golden rod clump to the desired size, then plant the alliums.

    Thank you for your comments. I had forgotten about garden centre pots! The golden rod is quite well behaved too but you are right - I could dig up a bit and replant elsewhere. Thanks - helped to clarify my thoughts.
