I have just notice around my ornamental allium there are many little babies about 2 inches high, when I started to hoe, I noticed the little tiny bulb on the bottom.  How do I prevent these growing.  I am going to dig the allium out and pot it up.  Thanks.    Mrs Bouquet

To prevent self-seeding, remember to cut off the flower head once the petals have dropped.

Just keep hoeing them off, they'll get the message sooner or later  ::)
