Alstroemeria Nature's Wonders Collection
Grown to the exact same standard as Princess Lilies, these Nature's Wonders Alstroemeria varieties are sure to perform well and deliver true value for money. Alstroemeria are perhaps at best use when planted as a border along driveways or footpaths, but will still give and outstanding performance in a pot on the patio, deck or verandah. Featuring two stunning varieties - Paola and Sara
Height: to 30cm
Width: to 40cm
Planting: Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. They make a beautiful border, colourful garden statement or are wonderful in larger pots (25cm-30cm). For borders, space at approximately 25cm intervals.
Watering: Alstroemeria are surprisingly drought hardy, however, extra irrigation at the time of flower bud formation will benefit flowering performance. It’s best to keep the plant moist in dry conditions to encourage new growth, especially when planted in pots. Mulching suggested.
Fertiliser: Feed in autumn and spring with a controlled release fertiliser to promote good plant health and promote flowering.
Pruning: No pruning as such! Snap off old, spent stems simply by grasping the base of the stem and twisting it away from the rhizome which will later produce a new shoot.
