The Q&A Archives: Allium Bulbs

Question: I planted my allium bulbs that I bought from and as of yet they have not bloomed? When can I expect them to come up? Thanks.

Answer: Allium bulbs should be planted twice as deep as they are wide (3"-4" for small bulbs, 6"-8" for large bulbs). Some flower in spring and others flower in summer, but all can take 2 years from planting before they'll bloom. Be a little more patient with yours and they're sure to provide those spectacular balls of flowers you're looking forward to enjoying.
