There’s nothing quite like bringing the garden together with alliums as they take over from the last of the late tulips. If you tend to them carefully and remove the leaves that are prone to looking tatty, then you can welcome a standard of colour and life comparable to the Chelsea Flower Show into your garden.
Alliums are an equally exciting addition you can take to the kitchen, with Society Garlic bringing the flavour without the halitosis. We also cover chives in this episode, which is a stunning perennial herb with uses in a delicious salad or a chive tea.
