Garden Update – Alliums


We didn’t know what these plants were, we first thought tulips or daffodils but as they grow a little bigger we could tell they weren’t either of those and found out that they are actually Alliums.  A little while ago we noticed that many of them had buds in the middle of the leaves but the stem

s are now growing longer and some of the buds started colouring.  Maybe some will flower in a couple of weeks.


Alliums look lovely and I remember I bought some once, I think in Singapore, and put them in a vase but they started to smell strongly and I got rid of them before they were completely gone.  I hope our garden will not be full of that smell….  There are so many of them, I’m a little worried.
