I have grown alliums from bulbs which have flowered this year and have been beautiful, they have now formed seed heads, I have collected the seeds and wish to know when and how to sow them and will they be ready to plant out in time for next year?



I think they need planting now, because they need a period of cold to germinate. There was a question about this on August 7th from Majeekahead, where Owdboggy gave clear instructions about how to do this. If you do a search for Allium seeds you should find it.

The best time to plant your Allium seeds and bulbs is from September to November.Hope this helps,
