Liliaceae plants

Liliaceae plants

The liliaceae are a very large family that includes several plants that are often found in our gardens such as asparagus, garlic, onion, shallot and leek. The common characteristics of these vegetables are that they do not need a lot of fertilization, that they can be easily transplanted with bare roots and that they do not have a large need for water. The vegetables of the lilac family, like all bulbous plants, do not like water stagnation, so be careful to grow them in draining soil.
