Sicilian Honey Garlic grows well in every decent garden soil providing it is well-drained. The bulbs do not like too much humidity although they need a lot of water while growing and producing flowers. Plant the bulbs in early autumn in a well lit location. The plants grow well in partial shade too. Do not be worried by the twisted leaves appearing early spring the following year. They are not infected by nematodes or other dangerous pests; those are just healthy leaves heralding the arrival of tall flowering stems.
When the cycle is finished and all the seeds are scattered around the garden, the leaves disappear and the dry flowering stems would like to vanish too, but they cannot. However, we can use them as dry ornamental elements for indoor decorations where they will last forever.
The empty space left by the disappeared plant could be refilled with annual ornamentals. But plant them there with due caution in order not to harm the perennial bulbs residing in the soil below.
The slightly nasty smell produced by Sicilian Honey Garlic can be an asset especially in the gardens infested with merciless rodents. They just abhor the odour and try to find a less fragrant areas in the garden. To make the process more difficult for them, we can plant a bunch of bulbs of Nectaroscordum here and there and thus save other precious plants from being damaged by the pests.
