ALLIUM MAIREI 'AMABILE'
This small species has very thin and almost grass-like apple green leaves emerging in early spring from slender bulbs. The delicate, frilly, and very dainty flowers are held in loose clusters at the top of each stem, each flower being composed of very narrow soft pink petals. Very few seeds.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
