Ideal For:
patio, cottage gardens, cut flower garden

June, July, August, September, October, November

sun or semi shade

Pot up Alstroemeria plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, plant Peruvian Lilies in a sunny or semi shaded position in fertile, moist, well drained soil. Alternatively, plant Alstroemeria in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Throughout the growing season, water Peruvian lilies regularly and feed container grown plants each month. When picking alstroemeria pluck the flowers rather than cutting as plucking stimulates the rhizome encourage further growth. In autumn, cut back the old Alstroemeria flower stems and apply a dry mulch of chipped bark or straw to the base of the plant to protect it from cold winter weather. Alstroemeria prefers to be left undisturbed but can be divided in autumn or spring if clumps become overcrowded.Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.

  1. Wrong colour and neglected plugs

    By Johnny Fox 15-03-2017

    I purchased 10 plug plants in 2015 and another 10 in 2016. All of the 2015 ones were wishy washy pink not purple as per photo and my last 10 were almost dead on arrival, the leaves were almost yellow with starvation. I have lost 8 but 2 have survived. I wait for them to bloom to see if they will be purple

  2. not as shown

    By Michael Gray 19-09-2014

    I have to agree with the previous review regarding the colour of this product. Although quite pleasant they are not the colour shown in the paper catalogue and on line. disappointing
