Planting and growing instructions: Allium Bulbs for Sale | Ambassador |Gold Medal Winning Harts Nursery

  • Choose a location to plant your Allium Bulbs, they like to be in full sunlight and well-drained soil.
  • Once you have found the perfect spot in your garden to grow your Alliums, you need to dig holes in the flower bed that are three times the circumference of the bulb. For example, if the bulb is two inches in size then it needs to be planted six inches deep.
  • Plant the bulbs about 8-12inches apart. For impact, plant in groups.
  • Alliums work well in rockeries and crowded gardens as they don't take up much space.
  • The Allium bulbs need to be planted pointy end up.
  • Water the bulb well once in situ.
  • To help the soil drain well it is also beneficial to spread mulch, wood chips and organic matter over the entire planting area.
  • Alliums will flower around May/June.
  • Cut the Alliums back at the end of their blooming season. They will then continue to grow in your garden year on year with very little maintenance.

Plant care: Allium Bulbs for Sale | Ambassador |Gold Medal Winning Harts Nursery

  • Allow flower to die back and remove any dead foliage in early Summer.
  • Remove any dead stems that become detached from their bases.
  • Alliums are hardy and can therefore be left in the ground all year round.
  • Keep an eye out for any diseased foliage.
  • Seldom need support.

Last year at the show at Lingfield I bought three huge bulbs: alium ambassador. These are extremely successful. I'd like to buy 6 (six) more. You priced them at 3 for 12 on the day. Can you sell me six by post? If so let me know your price inc postage. Many thanks.

Looking at buying your Allium Ambassador, what size pot do you recommend for 3 bulbs, please?

I'd give them lots of space and plant 3 allium ambassador bulbs in a 20" pot. You can always fill the pot with other bedding plants or bulbs to fill the base.
