Just as the summer colours fade and your garden bursts into autumn tones, why not add this beautiful soft pink Nerine with its dainty fairy-like flowers to give your garden that extra charm during the months of September through to November. 

Nerines are an especially wonderful plant to grow as it is so long lasting in the garden and looks equally as appealing when cut for your vases indoors.
