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.

I bought these lilies' and a high pot as a deal, initially the lilies' didn't seem to grow much but in late June they certainly sprang into life growing at a great pace, in my first season I have a beautiful tower of lillies with flowers from near the base to the very top, it is now September and they have shown no sign of stopping. I only logged on to see how to treat them over the winter and saw the poor reviews and just had to share my experience which has only been positive.

Misleading description and picture on website

Like other customers, I am very disappointed with the very slow growth of the plants after a few weeks. Maybe it takes several years for the plants to be well-established and look anything like the picture but this should be clearly indicated. I think the description on the website is misleading.
