Alliums as garden flowers have continued to soar in popularity, year on year.. And no wonder; the brilliant array of colors and forms available, plus an reliable appearance at Chelsea Flower Show, mean that these ornamental members of the ever-brilliant Onion Family are being planted in their droves right now.
So let's not forget their functional cousins! The ones we can actually eat!
Garlic, Shallots, Red, White and Brown Onions.. All of these can and should be going in the ground now too. Yes, they can be planted in Spring, but for the fattest results (and the greater choice in variety) then you should be looking at an autumn planting.
They are some of the easiest, tolerant, most well-behaved veggies you can grow.
