I grew alliums in my previous garden which was clay. I didn't put them on gravel or anything, just shoved them in and they were very reliable. I was given some seedheads for my new garden which I sowed in a big pot last summer not realy knowing the best way to go about it, and now magical little shoots are starting to appear. What forgiving plants.
@Pan Thompson, Perhaps they need a sunnier spot?
I am growing alliums for the first time this year but the leaves are starting to brown. Is that normal or am I doing something wrong?
@naomi4: Well, if its the globe type like mine, above, they send out lush growth early spring and then the leaves die back some time in June, when the flower spikes are in full bloom or slightly after. Maybe you have an earlier variety than me because right now, mine are still leafy without flower spikes yet Keep an eye on them.
so, how do you grow alliums from seeds?
