smell like onions, the bulb that is?? I think I found some bulbs when digging my old garden they are very small and smelled like onions. just wondering if it's them or not?? thanks Karen.
i think they do as they are part of the onion family
plant them and see what you get
i have some small aliums and a couple of big ones that came from grammie's house
LOL..this got my curiousity up. I just recieved some Alliums in a trade so I smelled them! Yes..they do smell like onions. This is my first experience with Alliums so I have learned something new!
I have wild onions that come up all over my property and they are very difficult to get rid of. They look like my alliums coming up. but they are a nusiance. They certainly smell like onions.
I have what my neighbor calls blooming garlic which is allium and if you even brush the leaves it smells the whole area of garlic/onion. I love it!
well I found to more bunches, don't know if they are or not, so I'll just have to wait and see what they do, then I'll know what they are for sure.
I have alliums in my garden that I love!! I also have a problem with wild onions.. both smell like onions. I do find that the wild onions have a smaller bulb.. mine are pretty white in color.. darn things.

The alliums in my garden are just beginning to bloom and there are quite a few varieites available.
still not sure, right now everything is slow, I do keep finds shallots that for some reason I planted in different spots around the yard and keep asking myself WHY?? i did that?? must have lost my mind last summer?
