Is fall the best time to plant allium bulbs or should I wait until spring. I'm here in Massachusetts.
I googled and found this:
Plant Allium bulbs in the soil in the spring, as soon as the ground can be worked. Plant them to a depth of twice the diameter of the bulb.
Here is a link that might be useful: how to grow ornamental alliums
I grow many ornamental alliums and I always plant in the fall. I've never heard of planting them in the spring before.
I never heard of planting ornamental allium bulbs in Spring also,in fact while in Illinois several weeks ago I saw some bulbs there and I just finished planting here in Kansas about 2 weeks ago to go with my others.
I plant in the fall.
Plant in the fall here too, about 6 years now, always successful.
