Cultural Instructions

Plant bulbs just below the soil, in a sunny well drained position. For best results leave undisturbed for a number of years. They flower better when they are grown in crowded clumps.  Plant on arrival in a sunny well drained position just below the surface. Ideal against a south facing wall.

Nerines will eventually need to be divided every 4-6 years so check out our cultural instructions. Plant in early spring in a moderately fertilised soil that is free draining.  Lift other varieties and store in frost free conditions.

Feeding

Feeding the bulbs can help them reach a good size and improve flowering. From January to April feed them every two weeks with a phosphorous and potassium-rich liquid feed, such as a tomato fertiliser, diluted to half strength (i.e. half what it says on the label for bulbs or containers) to stimulate flower production.
