Hi, I've just found the allium bulbs I bought last autumn still in their packets. What should I do with them? Could I plants in pots and keep indoors until better weather, or can I plant outside in spring, or should I store, or will I have to throw away? Thanks

well, my marked down Alium say plant Sept-Dec, so I was planning on planting this weekend, but an afternoon snooze got in the way... Next weekend will have to be a must.
No point throwing them out - might as well try planting them.

I'd just plant them and see what happens

Or you can keep them in a paper bag in the dark until next year and hope to remember them then

Plant them, definitely. In the ground or in pots. The ones I accidentally dig up now have only just started sprouting.
