20 bulbs.


Allium Sphaerocephalon (Drumsticks).   Horribly named but commonly called  'Drumsticks' thankfully.  Height 60cm.  Flowers in June and July.  This is a fantastic little Allium for planting en masse.  They can be planted at the same depth as Tulips.  As the flowerheads can be heavy on slim stalks I prefer to plant them deeper to give the stems more support.  It means they flower a litte later.  I also love growing them through decorative grasses such as Stipa Tenuissima.  Leave spent flowerheads in place for birds this variety should slowly self seed and naturalise.


Alliums like a sunny spot in well drained soil.  All bulbs prefer good drainage and we strongly recommend adding grit, gravel or sand to planting holes to aid drainage.
