Thanks Vivien, I've never tried from seed before but I might give it a go. I've just looked at the RHS website and it says you sow immediately after the seed pod has burst, nothing about stratification 🤔 @sadieberg
Really? I wanted to split this as it's got too big for where it is but I found two sets of buds this afternoon!! #peruvian-lily-indian-summer #alstromeria-tesronto-(summer-paradise-series) #alstromeriaindiansummer 🤔
😆😆👍 I started noticing foliage this year as I've been revamping my shaded corner and it dawned on me that foliage provides a longer season of interest than flowers. 😅 The downside is that foliage plants have less to offer for pollinators so I try to combine the two.
@pelly They're already on my wishlist for next year. I've seen them in cut flower arrangements here but haven't seen the bulbs for sale. Will wait till spring bulbs come out in our catalogues. Fingers crossed!!
Yes they say to divide them every few years but I've left mine to become bigger clumps. I've got 2 of them. I have a few other orange and yellow ones which are in their first full year from very tiny plants. Hoping I can divide those in a couple of years and spread them around a bit. No winter protection needed either but I mulch with horse manure which feeds for the following year 😀
