Tulbaghia (Summer Garlic)

Tulbaghia or Summer Garlic is a small genus of evergreen to herbaceous bulbous perennials from South Africa within the Amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae). Most species make narrow, somewhat glaucous to mid green leaves which have a garlic-like smell if being bruised. They make umbels of small showy white to beige or rose to pink flowers with a typical inner small corona. All Tulbaghia species are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in full sun throughout the year. During dormancy keep plants drier and in winter at a minimum of some 10°C with watering reduced to a minimum. Excellent in a frostfree greenhouse or wintergarden. Most species will already gain flowering size within one to two years.
Sow seeds flat on any well drained substrate and cover them slightly with soil. Keep pots in a sunny spot at some 20°C throughout the year and soil always slighly moist. A temperature drop at night down to some 10°C to 15°C will siginificantly enhance germination in several species.
