PNER101 Price:  £2.99

Nerine Stefanie has tall sturdy stems topped with pale blue/white/mauve petals that look stunning on a dull autumn day and have a faint musky scent when carried on the breeze. During the summer months the strappy, glossy leaves appear to be followed in September and October by the flowers bursting forth from the tall stems.
Nerines look stunning grown in large terracotta pots or enmasse in blocks or thick rows at the front of a sunny border planted alongside Colchicum (autumn crocus) and Cyclamen hederifolium which are both good autumn flowering companion plants, all giving their best in the months leading up to winter giving an extended season of colour and form.

A sunny well-drained spot is ideal for Nerines to thrive, planted 7-10cms apart and in soil that is fairly poor and on the dry side. If grown in a rich soil the leaves will excel at the expense of the iridescent flowers. Nerines prefer to grow in clumps, undisturbed, where they will give colourful displays every autumn.
Nerine bulbs can be planted at a depth of around 6cms as this will give protection from frost damage. Opinion is divided on this however, with some saying that the bulbs prefer to be just half-submerged in the soil. I think the best option is to plant them with the tips showing above the soil in their favourite location sunny and well-drained. Ensure that you dry mulch the crowns well in the first winter or two with straw until they are established, but do not let the bulbs rot. They hate wet and cold in winter.
