Hi. When is the best time to grow the seeds that I have just taken from my Allium.



Throw them in the border now - they need to cold and wet weather to germinate. I would put them somewhere you can forget about them as they take 3-5 years to flower and will only get small leaves till then.

Thanks Kildermorie.
I was going to plant them in pots so that I could give them to friends and place them in an area out of the way:o))

I too would sow in pots rather than the open ground, easier to remember where they are :-)
