Gardeners' World - - Alan's Job Of The Month -

It is said that the flow­ers drifted across the sea from South Africa, even­tu­ally land­ing on the is­land of Guernsey, and there­fore named in ref­er­ence to the 50 daugh­ters of the sea-god Nereus. Nowa­days, Nerine are the dar­ling with con­tem­po­rary flo­ral de­sign­ers. Glo­ri­ously strik­ing sprays of up to ten lily-like flow­ers with wavy re-curved petals ap­pear on erect leaf­less stems in au­tumn. Strap-shaped fo­liage de­vel­ops in the spring and will form im­pres­sive clumps over time. Grows best in very well-drained soil in full sun. Your or­der will be con­firmed and your size 12/14 bulbs will be de­liv­ered in Fe­bru­ary 2019 and are cov­ered by our No Quib­ble Guar­an­tee.
