Nerine bowdenii 3ltr


This product is unavailable

The Nerine provides a welcome burst of late season colour into your garden that will provide some voluminous texture to the space. This plant produces a small bush of long strap leaves that produce slender stems which carry the elegant flowers in small clusters at the top. Each cluster is made up of five plants, each with curled, ribbon-like petals that come in a variety of striking colours. Their classic look would not seem out of place in a modern design scheme where it will look great in a bed, border or container. It is unlikely that your plant will flower in the first year after begin introduced to a space, but in the following year it will flower with full vigour and attract pollinators into your space.

Where to plant Nerine plants

Plant in a well-draining, chalk or sand soil that receives full sun throughout the day. Make sure the space is sheltered from cold, harsh winds.

How to look after Nerine plants

Once planted it is not advised to disturb your plant much as it may cause them stress that will kill them. Water the plant well to help it establish itself and then only water to keep the soil moist, but not wet. Feed the plant once in the summer with a potash-rich fertiliser to help give it a boost for the growing season. Remove dead flower heads as soon as they begin to wilt to encourage new growth. Prune the foliage only when you need to in order to keep the plant looking neat.
