Allium christophii bulbs

  • Floral globes are produced less tightly packed than many of the other varieties which means that Allium christophii brings an airy elegance to any planting on stems 40-60cm high.
  • I adore all Alliums, I love the effect their perfection and  simplicity brings to the garden and of course they extend the flowering period right into the summer. 
  • Don't be in a mad rush to remove stems once the flowers are gone. I love the seed heads too and the structure the spent flower stems bring to a bed even when the colour has long gone.
  • The Allium christophii bulbs I am offering for sale are big and great quality which guarantees good quality blooms next spring. Bulb size 14-16 which is bigger than anything that I have found in garden centres wrapped in prepack plastic.
  • To put it simply, the bigger and beer quality the bulb that you plant, then the bigger and better quality the flowers, produced next spring in your garden
  • These Allium christophii, come from a supplier whose Alliums I have been planting in gardens for over 10 years and each year the quality is superb.
  • Stagger the planting over a few weeks in the autumn and winter if you want to and this will result in the blooms opening up over a longer period in the spring
  • All the packaging that I use is, where possible either reused, recycled or recyclable. All the bulbs are supplied to me loose in bulk crates so that there is no plastic wrapping or packaging to be dumped.

 

Spring Flowering Bulbs are Available to Pre-Order NOW for Delivery commencing September 2022

Save Money on your Spring Flowering Bulbs by ordering NOW

I take my lead on delivery. directly from the bulb growers, it varies each year as to when they are ready.

I wait until the grower says they are good to go, I am not pressured by when the supermarkets and garden centres have their bulbs available.

If we ship too early the bulbs may not be ready and will then rot.

If they are planted too early in the season then they won't flower at the right time in spring so please be patient, we have to work with Nature on this.

That being said, delivery will commence at some point in Septmeber with the bulk of orders being delivered during October

Spring bulbs vary in cost depending on the time of year. Ordering early in the year means that I can supply them at a better price. These will become more expensive as we get closer to the autumn.

In short, by pre-ordering spring flowering bulbs,

  • we save money and
  • have a better range to choose from
