With the arrival of colder nights we have now finished shipping Alstroemeria plants for this year, for next season, many more varieties will be added.
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 2019 we are offering more Summer Paradise varieties and 'Inticancha's', both have differing habits. Varieties from the 'Summer Paradise 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 Paradise' varieties they are not as hardy, surviving down to around minus 6c but not much colder, in most Inticancha's are best brought in before the first frosts, where they may well flower all 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.
