Medium Plugs - Trays of 20

Large Plugs - Packs of 5
Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants, individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden.

Advice
Alstromerias originate from the central Americas, and will thrive in a sheltered sunny spot flowering readily in the summer months as they are southern hemisphere plants that thrive on equal amounts of day and night.
Because they have tuberous, fleshy roots that will rot in wet winter soil make sure they are planted in an area that has good drainage. Adding some grit at the time of planting can help with drainage.

Planting instructions
When you receive your plug plant, give it a drink with tepid water before planting into a 1ltr pot with fresh multi-purpose compost.
Water in well and plant out into its final flowering position after approx 4 weeks if the weather is clement and the risk of frost has passed in your area.
