Allium Plant Care

Alliums multiply naturally and can be left undisturbed in the same area for years; however, clumps may be lifted and divided in either spring or fall. Allium will tolerate most soils, but performs best in sandy soils. Add organic matter like compost to clay soils if needed to improve drainage and lighten the soil.
