Often known as Guernsey or Cornish lilies, these spectacular flowering bulbs emerge before the leaves and add a real touch of the exotic to a late autumn planting scheme.
Plant bulbs in spring into good, free draining soil or compost in a warm, sheltered site. You can also plant nerines into containers if you garden on heavy wet soils. Plant with their necks just above the soil. Nerines enjoy the shelter of a warm wall and thrive in dry soils. They flower best when the bulbs are congested.
After care Cover planted bulbs with a dry mulch to protect them from frost and winter cold. Feed with a low nitrogen liquid feed after flowering . This will build up the bulbs for next years flowering.
