Trying to decide which alliums to buy for your garden?
Alliums look magnificent in the garden and are stunning as a cut flower. Looking through the catalogues, I always find it difficult to visualise the height and size of the blooms and especially which varieties work together.
At the BBC Gardeners' World Live event this year, Warmenhoven, a specialist in alliums and bulbs put on this incredible display at their outdoor stand.
Here are some of the incredible Alliums that were on display.
(L) Allium 'Jackpot' and (R) Allium 'Purple Rain'

Allium 'Purple Giant'
I also adore 'Giganteum' which have huge fluffy flower heads of densely packed flowers and reminded me of balls of cotton candy. Simply stunning!
