I have grown Alliums for the first time this year they are looking good. Should I lift bulbs after flowering?



You shouldn't have to, unless you are in a very cold and wet area. It's wet that rots the bulbs. I have Purple Sensation and I leave them in. They are very reliable and come up each year.

i'd go along with that spritz. I have mine buried deep 4" sitting on a lyer of grit to improve drainage. so if yours are shallowly buried you could lift & rebury deeper Pollyanna.
