I planted my Alliums in sep/oct as instructions in a pot with added grit in a sunny site. I was expecting them to be coming up by now but so far nothing. Have they died or am I to early In expecting to see them?
Some of my alliums are yet to appear, others are just showing. I wouldn't be too concerned just yet, it's still fairly early, so give them a bit of time. Sometimes newly planted bulbs take a bit of time to establish.
Not seen much of mine yet either.
Mine are mostly about 3 or 4 inches tall, but they are well established.
Same here, some not showing some just appearing.
Just looked - some are up. But while we are on the subject, last year was my first time with alliums, and the other day, when I went past the flower bed I spotted an array of familiar looking seedlings. They were just like onion pips. After a moment's thought, I realised that an allium must have seeded in the flower bed. Does anyone know if they would eventually develop into proper allium bulbs and flowers, or shall I just weed them all out?
Allium christophii seeds about generously in undisturbed spots. They take about 2 to 3 years to reach flowering size.
Thanks Fidget. I might try and grow some of them on then. I absolutely loved the Christophii last year. Firework explosions the size of footballs!!
Mine are coming along okay, about 4 / 5 inches tall.
they are tugs if they like your soil. they spring up all over the place.
