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.

Wrong colour sent, poorly plant & no reply from Customer Care!
By Liz Sherratt 13-06-2015
I had been wanting to get some of these Alstroemeria 'Everest Pink Punch' for ages, & I ordered some as part of a "Bumper Collection", but unfortunately this plant (& another live plant in the delivery) had both had their growing shoots broken off by a (free) DVD & some leaflets in the package which had slipped down & battered the plants. The plant was also very small with yellowy foliage & it looked like it had been away from natural light for a very long time. It was also meant to be ‘Pink’ coloured & the label says ‘Yellow’, which I really don’t want. Also, there was only one of them and there were supposed to be more.
I eMailed Customer Care & got a reply back saying that they were very busy & so wouldn't be able to reply in their usual timescales.
I have ordered from T&M in the past & been very pleased with both seeds and plants, but this year the standards seem to have dropped. Very, very disappointing.
