When should I expect allium bulbs to start showing? I planted a load last autumn however the ones I planted the year before started showing this time last year I'm sure but no sign yet. I planted christophi and globemasters
Dont worry alliums are very reliable, unless you planted them in ground what gets water logged they be fine. I suppose later you planted them the later they will show. Not one of my alliums are showing yet
one or two of mine are showing but not many
Mine are pretty much all through down here in mild Devon.
I have a few coming through, all newly planted in autumn, but definitely not all of them. All different varieties, but none of the big ones.All the existing Sphaerocephalons aren't showing yet though.
I think mine might take a look at the snow and sleet falling and sneak back below ground!
My Sphaers were the first to appear from last Autumn's plantings.
They do come through early even though they're later to flower. Perhaps I should go and take a look. They're very reliable. I probably just haven't noticed them Hosta
aym280 says:They should be showing their tips now, here in Essex any way! I've got quite a few small tips poking through soil.

I've just been outside and had a look and noticed more have popped up over the last few days. So it looks like they're starting to come now
My drumsticks have been showing for a month or so, Purple Sensation were not when I last checked, now they may be poking their tips through manure
Just had a look around out there in the almost freezing fog. This garden has hundreds of christophii and I can't see any of them yet
Those that are up were planted very late, (Gee-Tee sale) and are either atropurpurem or 'Miami'. As usual I can't remember what I put where and I haven't grown either before so don't recognise them.
Both my Globemasters and Gadiators are about 3 to 4 inches - Christophi - no sign yet but did plant later ?
