Planting Allium Drumstick for the First Time – Cut Flower Farm

This year, I’m growing a lot of different spring blooming flower bulbs for the first time. I’ve always had a pretty long list of different types of flowers that I have always wanted to try to grow. Thanks to those of you who read this blog and watch the videos on my Youtube channel, I was able to have a little extra money to spend on bulbs this year. That means that I was finally able to order some drumstick alliums!


Drumstick alliums have always been a flower that I have wanted to grow. Even though I’ve never seen them in real life, I think I actually prefer the smaller size of this flower to that of the large and tall allium flowers (which I’ve only grown once before in the past).

Regardless of my total lack of experience, the process of planting these bulbs was totally easy. Simply, I followed the package instructions. I did, however, plant the bulbs a little closer than what is recommended on that label. This was mainly due to the fact that I didn’t have much space.

According to the website that I ordered these flowers from, these alliums are prone to continue to multiply as they grow. If this is the case, I’ll eventually need to dig up these bulbs and move them to a location with more space. Have you ever grown drumstick alliums before? If so, I would love to hear all about your experiences in the comments below! I hope you’re having an amazing day!
