1

In­vest in a var­ied se­lec­tion of al­lium bulbs in dif­fer­ent sizes and shapes, ei­ther as ready-made col­lec­tions in gar­den cen­tres, or buy in­di­vid­u­ally.

2

In pots, choose a deep con­tainer. Fill two thirds full with good qual­ity mul­ti­pur­pose com­post. Plant bulbs close to­gether, a bulb width apart.

3

For a ‘lasagne’ bulb dis­play, layer your plant­ing. Cover over the larger bulbs with more com­post and leave room for a top dis­play of smaller bulbs.

4

Plant small bulbs one bulb width apart and 5-10cm (46in) deep from the sur­face. Cover with com­post and wa­ter well, plac­ing the pot in full sun.
