they look fantastic- like alien craft- but can you make bulbs from them?

I'd love to know this.
I love these flowers, but can't find seeds anywhere!

Alliums are grown from bulbs so not too sure you can do anything with the seed heads.

Sorry was quite wrong, some info here on seeds:

I think all alliums - edible or ornamental - can be grown from seed. It just depends on how long you want to wait before you have viable flowering bulbs ...
