    Default Allium Giganteum

    Hi

    i am growing Allium Giganteum in my veg plots, (a little tip i got from the eden project). the leaves take up quite a bit of space - what do people think about me now removing the leave now the flower stem is up? (the flower is not out yet)
    this is the first year i have grow these so not sure what happens next

    cheers

    I have been told I can remove the leaves of mine when they start to yellow. Thats after they flower. Why did Eden say to grow them with veg?

    Hi

    they look good and attract the right insects.

    does anybody else grow flowers in with their veg? I seem to read about doing it all of the time
