Delivery of Nerines

This question was asked by
Nick

About to order a pack of 25 nerines but noticed delivery was not until February, these need to be in the ground this month ideally, am I mistaken?

Hi Nick

We dispatch Nerines in the spring when they need planting for late Summer/early Autumn flowering.

These are a great addition to your garden when most of your other summer flowers are starting to die off… then you have the burst of Nerines coming through to give you some extra colour in your garden as the autumn months draw in.

Potting up Nerines

This question was asked by
Carrie

I’d like to order some Nerine but would like the know how to pot them up.

PLANTING NERINES IN POTS
If you are planning to plant in pots, plant your bulbs using a mixture of 50% multipurpose compost and 50% loam-based compost such as John Innes No.2. As with planting in the garden, plant the bulbs with their necks above the soil surface.

SOME KEY CARING TIPS FOR NERINES
Nerines do not like to be disturbed so establish a decent position from the off and avoid moving them.
Protect in very cold areas with a mulch over winter.
Don’t worry if the flowering is not brilliant the first year, its just establishing itself. Be patient and you will see results in 12-18months.
Do not divide Nerine bulbs as they prefer to become quite congested and grow in clumps.

Alternatively, we have planting and care instructions on each nerine product page Nerines
You should find some helpful information on potting up Nerines here.

When do I divide nerines?

Good morning,
You do not need to divide Nerine bulbs as they prefer to become quite congested and grow in clumps. Also, Nerines do not like to be disturbed so establish a decent position from the off and avoid moving them.
Protect in very cold areas with a mulch over winter.
Hope this helps. Further instructions on planting and caring for Nerines can be found on each product page:

You can pre-order your nerines now for delivery in the spring when they need planting. We sold out last year after Monty Don featured them on Gardener’s World.

Information

This question was asked by
Dean Atkinson

Hello,
I have been looking at your Crinum Powelli Alba bulbs and wanted to ask your advice before placing an order.
I tried to grow these last year (not purchased from you). They were top sized bulbs but the most that I achieved was a lot of leaves with no flowers.
Are these easy to grow and do you have any advice on the best way to achieve good results.
Also, are these hardy, I am based in the Midlands.
Thanks
Dean

Hi Dean

Nerines are hardy and easy to grow. Sometimes that can take a year or two to get settled in. They can be a little fussy as they don’t like being disturbed. We advise planting them in a nice sunny position with the necks planted just above ground level.

Hello
What is the correct way to plant Nerine bulbs?
Some places say neck above soil, some say whole bulb below soil, some say most of bulb above soil.
Which is correct?
Thank you.

Good morning,
We advise having the neck of the nerine bulb above the soil – see instructions attached.
