Give alliums a second chance?

BerkleyBerkley Posts: 413
I have lots of alliums - and most of them look as though they are going to produce a lovely show for me, as usual. But a number are clearly not going to flower, even though they have plenty of healthy-looking foliage. Should I remove these and replace them in the Autumn or should I leave them and hope they will do better next year?

    I wonder if they are in fact seedlings of the flowering ones? I have the same thing going on and I'm giving mine the benefit of the doubt.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    i have the same problem. i pull up the ones with no buds, otherwise the leaves collapse on everything else.
