Bulb question

No idea vishu - but I admire your determination!

Keep it well away from the others as obelixx has said. If they're hard to get hold of, I can understand you want to make the effort to make it grow, but I'd doubt it.

Keep us updated, and if you manage to get some life out of it and prove us all wrong, we'll give you a round of applause

Morning all/afties Pat if you're about 

Still a bit blowy but, other than that tree down in the nearby road, there's no obvious damage here. The next one's coming on Monday but I think it's the far north and the islands that are getting it. Sky's very black and there's a lot of hail/snow filled clouds - certainly chilly enough for it, three degrees when I went to feed the birds. Sleety rain just now.

Best of both worlds for your Dad chicky. Out to enoy your company and a nice dinner, but safely back  in hospital to get the care he needs to get well. Sending our fairy love to you all xxx

Just heard that Carrie Fisher has had a heart attack. Hope she is alright. We don't need any more well loved people leaving us in 2016. 

Cute obelixx. I had two kittens (brother and sister) when I had my first flat and they slept cuddling each other and one of my childhood cuddly toys. 

Don't envy your OH Dove. Hope the customers aren't fighting over the giblets. Daughter is also working today,  till 8 tonight. Her dad's job to collect her though. Even she was open mouthed at Hosta's story about the turkey rejecting f***y. Wonder if he found a suitably 'large' one for his requirements. Is it uncharitable to hope he didn't? ....

Ken Muir is excellent Dove  

Yes - a few little plants in spring would soon grow on well and even crop a little next year GD. They'll be even better the following year and you can take runners from them to increase your stock

Just watching the weather on the Scottish BBC news - gusts of 117mph in the Cairngorms. That's a helluva breeze up the Drumochter Pass.....

Enjoy your break Wonks, and please yourself a bit. As I get older, I realise how important it is to get a proper balance between work and home life, and to fit in some time to enjoy doing the things I like, instead of running around to suit everyone else. 

Doesn't always go to plan, but as long as there's a balance most of the time, it definitely makes for a better life

Nice timing too Wonks - you can fully recover from your flu, and you'll be ready to get up and go... and take on the world!

Evening Wonks - hope that works out for you. Disappointing about your previous job, but here's to the future and better things to come for you

Ex hubby has just been to collect daughter and said there's a tree down round the corner so he had to come round a different way. It's a minor road as there's farmland, and treelined. Perhaps it's windier than I thought!

Nice and cosy indoors though

If they do turn out to be chives vishu, they'll appreciate some shade and a more moist soil.

However, the bulbs seem enormous, so I don't know what you have!  

A decent, free draining medium that doesn't dry out too quickly or get terribly waterlogged will be fine for most alliums.  A reasonable balance is what you should aim for, and then you can tinker with it  a bit once you know what you have. Your temperatures,  and the aspect the plants are in, will also have a bearing, as Berghill has explained - ie the climate most of these plants grow in.
