Goringfolly's Garden


Genus: Allium.

Species: Allium.

This the ordinary herb that can be used in so many ways.
It has culinery, medicinal and household uses. We use it mainly in salads and gerlic bread, but in May I can also pick a bunch of flowers! Easy to cultivate by splitting up. It likes sun or partial shade and a rich, moist well drained soil but will tolerate poorer conditions.
