Blink and the flower head is showing
The”scapes” or flower stalks are edible, and there seems to be mixed opinions as to whether or not letting the it flower reduces the size of the cloves or not. Last year I let one or two go to flower up on the plot and the bees and butterflies adored them, and so did I.
This year I’m growing them in the garden and plan to let a few of them grow with the flower heads on. I love Allium flowers and think they’ll look stunning in a flower bed. I can’t resist a strapping 6 foot Allium flower
