Growing & Maintenance Tips for Allium tuberosum ''Geisha''

Thirives in full sun and normal to dry soils. Fertilize with compost at planting time and then regularly with an all purpose, organic vegetable food according to package instructions. Over watering can cause the bulb to rot, so water moderately. Remove spent flowers to reduce seedlings next season.
