"Hi, the answer to your question,
You should plant them in a spot which gets a lot of sun in well-drained soil
If they are tall ones put them at the back of your border shorter ones at the front.
They should also be planted between early and mid-autumn.
Kind regards

"Alliums do best in a sunny spot in a very well-drained soil. They're not fussy about soil type. Plant taller varieties towards the back of a border and shorter-growing types in the front. Alliums are well suited to growing in pots but their strappy foliage can look unsightly after flowering."
