Thank you Angela - these do seem to be the last, although I’ve got one variety that hasn’t flowered this year and no buds in sight. But it did seem to struggle in the summer and lost its leaves. Hopefully will be better for next year 🤞🏼🤞🏼 @italydiva
Repotted all my nerines today in new soil mix, along with a bigger terracotta pot. I’ve still gone with a shallow pot though. Pleased to see them all clumping up very well (originally three bulbs) and all of them have flowered every year for the last three-four years
Getting very familiar with their growing pattern now too. It’s perfectly normal for mine to start growing their foliage in February but they seem to have sped up this last week #nerine #nerinebowdenii #nerine-bowdenii #bowdenlily
Hi @rosiebug , yes they are usually one of the last bulbs to flower in the season and start to bloom from end of September through to end of Oct/mid November - I've got two varieties and looks like they still have about 2-3 weeks life still in the flowers. 😀 I have a third type which is a lot more tender and I think it flowers over winter. Fingers crossed!
Morning folks, hope everyone is enjoying Friday so far. I'm adding some missing items from my plant list today - of which there are a few 😳... Starting with these Nerines #nerine #nerine-bowdenii #bowdenlily
This is my first attempt at growing them. Whilst researching more info on Nerines and how to plant the bulbs, I found out that you should plant them so that the necks of the bulbs are partly exposed above the soil, as they like to bake in the sun. I also concluded that they are similar to agapanthus in that they prefer to be overcrowded. So hopefully I won't need to do much with these other than an occasional feed and repotting every few years.
Hey Ann 👋🏼, that was a lovely present 😀 - they will put a cracking display on for you. Don't worry about if you crowd them in, seems to be fine with these. I probably could have added a couple more bulbs to my pot but only bought three. Never mind, they'll bulk up soon enough. Are you putting them in ground or pots? Either is fine just make sure it's very sunny. @thomasrat3
