Product Information

It's easy to see why Alliums are prized for their architectural blooms, but they are normally long finished by late summer. Thankfully that is not the case with Allium 'Lavender Bubbles'. This beauty waits until August before sending up its fluffy, rounded blooms that punctuate perennial borders with a punch of bright purple. For those looking to add maximum effect to their outdoor space, Alliums are the perfect choice thanks to their calming colours and floating appearance. The foliage is blue-green in colour with a gentle twist at the tips of the leaves for added drama. 'Lavender Bubbles' are a lovely, low maintenance choice for sunny borders and gravel gardens. Alliums are also ideal for encouraging wildlife into your garden, as they are always busy with the hum of pollinating insects.

Top Tips

Underplant with hostas, ferns or other low-growing, hardy perennial plants which will help to disguise the leaves as they fade.

Care Information

  • Find a location where the soil drains well and where they will receive full sun.
  • Plant Allium bulbs in early to mid-autumn in a sheltered site to prevent the top-heavy flower spikes from getting blown over.
  • Dig over the soil and remove any weeds before planting.
  • Water well after planting, saturating the soil around the bulbs.
  • Once established, Alliums are drought tolerant.
  • In borders, plant bulbs in early autumn at a depth of about four times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • In containers, Alliums will do well in deep pots with a good general-purpose potting compost with a handful of horticultural grit added.

Aftercare Advice for Allium Lavender Bubbles

  • After planting, feed with a general-purpose feed such as our Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser.
  • Dried flower heads can be removed and made into indoor decorations or left on the plants to self-seed.
  • Divide Alliums every three to four years or when the plants begin to look overcrowded and blooming decreases.
  • Lift the bulbs with a garden fork or spade and pull the bulbs apart.
  • Replant some in the original location and plant the remainder in a new location.

Pruning and trimming advice for Alliums

  • The leaves die down at flowering time, so it's best to plant Alliums where this foliage is masked by that of other plants.
  • Avoid removing them while still green, as they provide the bulbs with energy for the following season.
