I love alliums, there is something so majestic about them towering over the other plants. So straight and tall but with that wonderful ball head of flowers. The purple allium above was my one and only. I get the feeling that one of my boys kicked the football really hard and completely lopped the head off. He says not – mmm, flowers and my boys just don’t go – but I will not give up.
I ordered another allium from crocus
along with some other plants. They all arrived safe and sound apart from the allium which arrived with its head also chopped off! Aaaargh! I found a home for it and have still been able to get some pleasure out of it in my hallway. Crocus were great and have sent me a gift voucher…
but do I dare buy more alliums?
