Garden Trick

I raved on in Volume 1 of my newsletter about that special member of the onion family, Allium christophii - Star of Persia - and am now very pleased to augment my enthusiasm. Having tried them before in vases without great luck and continual complaints from the household about how putrid the smell, I've found that in an elegant metal vase they don't seem to stink and have lasted for weeks! Maybe the leeching of the metal? And as they fade they just get silverier.
