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. In autumn, cut back the old 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. Very pretty alstroemeria

    By Kate King 31-07-2014

    Have had this plant for a year now. Grew it in a pot on my patio for the first year, while I was planning my borders. Have planted it into the border this year and it is growing well and about to flower again. A couple of the stems are solid green rather than variegated - not sure if I should cut these off or just leave them. Very pleased with this plant.

  2. Alstroemeria Rock n Roll

    By Neil Lewis 18-05-2014

    I received my order for 3 Alstromeria Rock n Roll recently, and to say I was disappointed with the quality of the plants is an understatement. The leaves on two of the 3 plants had become detached from the single bulbs, so all I had was two 1 inch bulbs with a couple of detached leaves and the 3rd plant still had the leaves attached to the bulb, but was lying horizontally on the compost of the pot I've put it into. I certainly wouldn't have purchased these if I'd seen them beforehand, and at £19.99 for 3 plants they weren't cheap. Furthermore, Thompson & Morgan have not responded to my complaint, which was made 9 days ago.....apart from two standard EMails to say they will respond as soon as they can. This is not the treatment I expect from a large company.
