Allium + Hosta
Flower bulbs - Bare-rooted mix
We love it. This is a mix of the an allium flower bulb with bare-root stock plantain lilies. The allium begins flowering in May. It has a big purple flower on an enormous stem. This will continue for months. This bulb is self-seeding and it returns year after year. The plantain lilies grow closer to the ground. The mix contains the cultivars "Albomarginata", "Frances Williams" and "Hyacinthina". The "Albomarginata" is green with white edges. The "Frances Williams" is dark green with light green edges. The "Hyacinthina" is completely green. In July, lilac-coloured flowers will appear. You will receive the plantain lilies as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. After planting, keep the soil around the alliums and plantain lilies moist. Pay particular attention during dry spells. Alliums and plantain lilies thrive in flower pots as well as in the garden. The plantain lilies prefer full or half shade. The allium can be planted anywhere.

How do I plant the flower bulbs?
It’s best to plant the flower bulbs as soon as possible after receipt. Plant it directly into the ground, in a flower pot or in a spacious planter. The flower bulb grows best in loose, well-drained soil. A sheltered spot in the sun, semi-shade or in the shadow will do just fine.

The flower bulb should be planted at a depth of 3 times the height of the bulb. For instance, if the bulb is 5 cm high it should be planted at a depth of 15 cm. The distance between small bulbs is 5 - 8 cm and 10 - 15 cm between larger ones.

Planting can be done in spring as well as in autumn. Use a small spade or a special bulb planter for planting. Plant the bulb with the tip up and the roots down. When planted outdoors, flower bulbs are often frost hardy. Cover them with leaves just to be on the safe side.

Planting the flower bulbs in the garden
Find a suitable place in the border or create a flowerbed. Loosen the soil well and divide the flower bulbs across the surface. That can be done in groups of 6 or spread out evenly. Plant the bulb as indicated above, water immediately, and don't walk on the freshly planted area.

How do I plant the flower bulbs in a pot or planter?
Put a layer of hydro grains on the bottom of a decorative pot. Place the flower bulb in the potting soil at the right depth. When planted in a pot, they can be somewhat closer together. Water immediately after planting. Move the pot inside in winter as a potted bulb is not frost hardy.


What do I need?

  • Watering can

How do I care for the flower bulbs?
Water the flower bulbs abundantly in spring and summer. The soil needs to stay thoroughly moist, especially during dry spells. Flower bulbs in a pot or planter can best be put inside in winter. Keep them in a cool and frost-free place.

Replacing a flower bulb
It’s a good idea to plant new flower bulbs every year. After all, they are at their best the first year.


Bulbs come in various shapes and sizes... and colours! Over the years, there have been thousands of different cultivars created so really, there is a suitable bulb out there for everyone.
Those with mid-height and taller stems (> 20 cm high) are particularly suited to growing as cut flowers for in a pretty vase.
