Growing Calendar for Tulbaghia violacea Silver Lace - 9cm Shrub
Delivery: Mid September to Early January
Garden-worthy member of the garlic family, society garlic Silver Lace (Tulbaghia violacea) is ideal for planting in pots and containers for charming flowers through the summer and well into November.
The evergreen strappy leaves with white contrasting white veins look perfect when grown with colourful bedding plants. Perfect for the front of flowerbeds or rock gardens too that contain free-draining soil.
Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society this is a lovely perennial (half-hardy in exposed areas). We recommend you bring under cover over winter.
The fragrance of the leaves puts off unwanted visitors to the garden like rodents, which is useful for allotments where rodents are prone to eating seeds and nibbling young plants.
Society garlic is a fantastic ingredient in the kitchen as well as a pretty flower in the garden: just pick some of the edible leaves and flowers; fantastic for chopping and adding to salads or on jacket potatoes to give a peppery and garlic-like kick. Society garlic is also free of the anti-social odours associated with regular garlic.
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
