Indoor Planting: N/A
Outdoor Planting: Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms, in heavy soils add grit and or humus matter to help with drainage. Plant bulbs just below the soil, in a sunny well drained position. For best results leave undisturbed for a number of years as they will flower better when they are quite crowded. Nerines will eventually need to be divided every 4-6 years so check out our cultural instructions on the blog or give us a call.
Feed with bone meal or similar during the flowering period to ensure they remain health for years to come. Plant in areas that are not exposed to the worst of the elements and in soils that have not been freshly manured. Regularly feed during the growing season with foods such as well rotted manures, Tomato feed and bone meal.
Keep well fed during the growing season and if possible mulch borders with well rotted manure or compost over the winter.
