Allium 'Lavender Bubbles'
This ornamental onion makes a lovely, bushy plant, with upright, slightly twisted foliage, topped by lots of large, rich blue-lilac flowers. The flowers are attractive to bees and other garden pollinators, and last well when used as cut flowers.
Hardy and easy to grow in patio containers, or planted into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Cut out any dead flowers to encourage repeat flowering and remove any old foliage in the spring.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather.
