What kind of soil and fertiliser do alliums need?

Allium Growing Conditions

All alliums like rich, well drained soil. They need a steady supply of water to ensure proper growth. In the spring, give all your alliums a good dose of a complete fertilizer, followed by regular feedings of fish emulsion throughout the growing season. Interplant alliums with rose bushes for pest control.
