    This beautiful Allium flower is one of my favouites. It is almost shaped like a purple snowball. Some seeds were allowed to drop, and there are numerous small plants forming, so I should have a large cluster next year, which should be most attractive.

    How long from seed drop to flowering size? I usually let seed fall, but my clumps haven't increased with these as much as with other types of bulb, such as snowdrops or nerines.

    I don't know the time it takes from seed to blooms, but will separate the plants and find out next year. They are too crowded at the present time.
