Care

Allium Care

Plant in areas of full to partial sun. It's suggested to provide a minimum of 4+ hours full sun daily. Too little light will cause growth issues. 

Fertilize as required, especially if planted in poor soil. Our Slow Release Fertilizer is a great option. 

Keep its soil moist, but not wet. Irrigate during establishment, and during periods of drought. 

Does best in well draining, sandy soils. 

Cut back in late fall/early winter after it browns. Cover with approximately 2" of mulch to help protect it over winter, especially in colder zones. 

May be divided and replanted in the spring or the fall.
