Top to Bottom:
Globemaster Allium. Young offsets. After missing a year dividing. These bulbs will need to be separated in the fall. Hardy as they are, I’ve been unable even with up to 3 feedings a season, to achieve anywhere near the size flowers of the 1st and 2nd seasons. I’m going to try A. Christophii in the fall. I’ve seen them multiple rapidly and return with good size at the Tech in Randolph. I suspect I would have to lift the bulbs post flowering and pot up and feed feed feed, maybe even deny them flowering a couple of years to build up the bulbs to what they were when I bought them.
