Allium roseum from aerial bulbils

Hello. This is my first post here so please treat me gently fellow gardeners.   I have Allium roseum in my garden for the first time this year and I am delighted with it.  I have noticed it has produced aerial bulbils and I really want to have a go at propagating them.  I have found advice on how to do this but I can't find anything telling me when I should remove and separate them from the plant.  Does anybody have any experience with this.  Any help gratefully received,

    Hello horticanine

    I can't see anything specifically for alliums but my book deals with lily stem  bulbils and says "when they are loose" so maybe it's the same in your case. Good luck!

     

  • Thanks very much. I'll leave them be at the moment and keep an eye on them
