Once the flowers have gone over, leave the seedheads for additional interest throughout the rest of the year. Leave foliage in-tact as this will provide your bulb with enough energy for the following season. Allium bulbs do not need to be lifted during winter as they are fully hardy. Instead, mulch the base of your plant well with mushroom compost.
