Allium Tick All the Boxes!

We think you'd be hard-pressed to find a plant that is so decorative and yet so l very useful in the garden as Allium. Not only do they come in the traditional purple-ball style but also in a gallery of shapes, sizes and colours. Considered bee magnets these lovely flowers are multi-purpose and can be used as fresh, dried or cut these amazing flower bulbs are simply fun to grow. Oh, and did we mention that squirrels, rabbits & deer don't like them? Bonus!

Join Pam & Elke today in the Botanus Garden Club and learn why Alliums should definitely be planted in your garden this fall.

Our contest question this week was: which of the Alliums we mentioned looks like fireworks?

It's the Allium schubertii!
