Alliums

Some of the alliums that have come out round London are really spectacular.  I absolutely love alliums – there’s something very structural about them and they provide great food for bees during the June gap.  Bulbs in my garden in the IoW tend to come out a bit later than in London (perhaps because it’s windy) so I hope mine will come out soon.

Beautiful alliums

Last year, I was rather eyeing up some white allium bulbs from Crocus but they were £4 each, which does seem a bit steep.  I do like the way they look like giant dandelion docks.

Update: Am in the IoW.  Not A Single Sodding Allium.  Not one.  They were beautiful last year but are entirely absent this year.
