Alliums for planting in Portugale

This question was asked by
PETER LEGG

Should I be planting Alliums in Autumn in Portugal or at another time.Also will they tolerate full sun.

Hi Peter

Our Alliums are available to plant in September through to November. They will be fine to plant them then in Portugal as long as you have a cold dormant phase. They will just flower earlier due to your warmer temperatures.

Hi.
Most of my large purple alliums and some white ones have finished flowering. Do I cut the tops off and if so how far down to I prune them.
Looking forward to my bulbs I have just ordered from you.

Hi

We advise leaving at least 50% of the stem and allow to to fully die back before removing it entirely.
