How do you propergate alliums?

I have collected many seed heads and am wondering if you can propergate from them?



Growing from seed is the easiest way of propagating Alliums.
Separate the seeds out from the heads and sow on the surface of a pot of seed compost with added grit. Cover the seed with a thin layer of grit, add a lable and moisten the compost. Then just leave the seed outdoors until they germinate.

Bulbaholic is right, Jewells, after all, they are just pretty onions!

How can you, Vince. 'Just pretty onions' indeed! Some people dote on them.

My mother used to make me eat them when I was young, so I can't look one in the face without cringing with guilt. LOL
