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.

These tall Alstromeria plants will appreciate a climbing frame or similar support to protect their tall stems. Insert the support into the ground prior to planting and tie the stems in with soft twine throughout the growing season.

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.

    have grown alstroemeriasfor a few years now.I bought an everest selection earlier in the year and was astonished how fast and high they grew in their first year from a 5cm pot. As advertised, nearly 6 feet tall.. very satisfied.

  2. Disappointed

    By Judith Yebernetsky 02-10-2015

    Having had great success with Alstomeria Indian Summer last year and then again this year, the Everest Blue Diamond did not succeed. They arrived in Late July instead of May, due to growing problems at T&M. They just did not grow at all,(from July to Oct) two of the 3 died. I have one left that is still 2" high (if that) but week and feeble, so a complete waste of money
