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 2024 we will have available a large range of both dwarf and tall-growing. Those from the 'Summer Paradise' range are tall growing, 'Inticancha's' and 'Princesses' are dwarf, 'Valleys' somewhere between the two, if in doubt please ask. For cutting 'Summer Paradise' varieties are best and are hardy down to minus 15c. 'Inticancha' and 'Princess Lilies' are dwarf growing and not so hardy, they should survive temperatures down to around minus 5, any colder and they may well die, for this reason, we recommend keeping them in a cold greenhouse overwinter. Alstroemeria are easy to grow in any well-drained soil or multipurpose, two things they hate drying out and getting hungry!
