They are very easy to grow and since they are readily available in the UK in collections or individually, it is simply a matter of choosing the variety or mix that you want and planting the bulb in the soil with a trowel or bulb planter. Most Alliums tend to do best in well drained loamy soil in a fairly sunny position, but because there are many varieties some will tolerate cooler more shady spots. It is worth paying attention to the overall height of the variety you have chosen, particularly if you intend to grow them in a border. I usually scatter plant them across the whole bed in twos and threes which looks very effective.
