More Alliums!!!

With so many posts on garlic, leeks and onions in a row it’s starting to look like I’m a bit of an allium nut. I’m not honest (although it’s going to take a lot of convincing as there may be more in the pipeline).

Got in from work this morning to find a delivery of a large box marked “Chocolate chip muffins”.

You’d think that I might be a bit disappointed to open it and find that it didn’t contain a single muffin but I wasn’t.

Instead the box was full of my order from Edulis.

Allium ampeloprasum var. babingtonii Allium paradoxum
Allium ampeloprasum var. babingtonii
Allium paradoxum
Allium hookeri ‘Zorami’ Allium cepa ‘Perutile’ Allium schoenoprasum ‘Black Isle Blush’
Allium hookeri ‘Zorami’
Allium cepa ‘Perutile’
Allium schoenoprasum ‘Black Isle Blush’

Packed nice and securely inside were

  • two large Babington Leek bulbs (I don’t hold out much hope for the bulbils I have planted so wanted something more established ),
  • Few-flowed Leek/garlic  (Allium Paradoxium) bulbs – really hard to find, this was the only place I found them
  • Hookers Onion /Chives (Allium hookeri ‘Zorami’) – although Allium acuminatum is also called Hookers Onion (guess there’s a lot of Hookers around  – well rugby is popular).
  • Everlasting/Eternal Onion (Allium cepa ‘Perutile’ ).
  • Allium schoenoprasum ‘Black Isle Blush’ – chives but with a prettier flower.
