Two years ago I purchased a pack of Allium bulgaricum bulbs that I planted in the garden. On another blog of mine I wrote my thoughts on Allium bulgaricum, a couple of days later I was cleaning out my room and found a bulb that had apparently fallen behind a cabinet. For two years the bulb survived without water, soil and light and is now starting to sprout. I'm amazed at how resilent this little bulb is and how much it wants to grow. It almost makes me rethink my opinion of this bulb in my garden, almost.
Please, no comments on how I didn't clean thoroughly enough under the television cabinet for two years. In my defense after the vacuum goes under it I don't pay much attention. And just to protest a little bit more the carpet is a light color similar to the bulb so it was, um, camouflaged.
Yes, I did take the bulb out and plant it in the garden. Part of me wanted to water the Bulgarian Onion in place just to see if it would bloom- taking indoor gardening to a whole new level.
