Here on our Nursery we have cultivated Alstroemeria for many years to use as cut flowers, they are both easy to grow and suffer from very few pests. Newly planted plants quickly form clumps that will produce flowers for the whole Summer, from June until the first frosts here in Southern England. For 2018 we are offering varieties from two ranges, namely 'Summer series' and 'Inticancha's', both have differing habits. Varieties from the 'Summer series' tend to be quite tall growing, for this reason they are the number one choice for growing in borders, great for cutting and hardy down to minus 15c. Inticancha hybrids are dwarf growing and the best choice for containers, when compared to 'Summer' varieties they are not as hardy, surviving down to around minus 6 but not much colder, in most areas they are best brought in for Winter. Mulch plants in borders and give containers some protection, they dislike being frozen solid. All are easy to grow in any well drained soil or multipurpose.
