Allium Violet Beauty is a beautiful, early summer flowering bulb. One of my favourite of all the Allium bulbs.

These Allium Violet Beauty bulbs are supplied in packets of 7 

 

 

  • 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. 
  •  Allium 'Violet Beauty' is paler in colour than many of the other Allium varieties but still brings that elegance to the garden that you expect from Alliums.
  • Flowering stems can reach up to 90 centimetres in height and each perfectly formed, globe shaped Allium 'Violet Beauty' flower will reach about 20cm in diameter and is purple in colour
  • These are super quality bulbs. Quite simply, the better the bulb, the better quality the plant and flowers.
  • 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.
  • Plant 20cm deep and 10cm or more apart
  • Stagger the planting over a few weeks if you want to and this will result in the blooms opening up over a longer period in the spring
  • Size of Bulb 10-12cm

I have been growing Alliums from this grower for over 10 years and each year the quality is superb.

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

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
