They are both late season flowering and very attractive to pollinating insects. This country garden look is easy to achieve and will provide a stunning combination of colour and flower shape in late spring.

An ideal present for gardeners

Create this stunning look with our special collection which comprises 20 Allium Purple Sensation, 10 Camassia Leichtlinii alba and 5 Allium Mount Everest.

Cultivation instructions:

Before planting your bulbs cultivate soils to a depth of 15 to 20 cms and plant bulbs 10-15cms deep and 15cms apart. In heavier soils add grit and or humus matter to help with drainage. Alliums and Camassia can be left to naturalise and as such can be left undisturbed for many years. They must however be fed during the flowering and leaf stage with something like bone meal, well rotted compost or similar. Do not cut off or tie up the leaves as this will not allow the bulbs to take in nutrients for the following years growth.

Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering (if not using as a cut flower) to get the best from them.

Care tips:

Keep well fed during the growing season and remember to lift and divide after a number of years. They will work well when grown with other tall alliums and camassia.

Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.
