I am new to ALLIUMS

(Zone 4b)

I just returned from a tour of residential gardens and I am always pleased if I learn one thing that I can apply to my own garden. Today was ALLIUMS. I don't know much about them but they are clearly a worthwhile addition to a spring early summer garden. The large ones I saw were striking and they don't appear to take up much room ('width wise').

Can you fill me in on more details?

- bulb...planted in the fall?

- do they require full sun?

- do squirrels or deer eat them?

- can you recommend a variety?
