Nerine bowdenii
Nerine bowdenii

Nerine flowers very late, therefore I grow it in pots. The pot is green of the leaves all summer and autumn, until nightfrosts bites, where it’s time to move it inside the greenhouse. Then it’s also time for the flowering, and no more vegetables in the greenhouse.
After flowering comes the dormant period. The pot is plunged in among pots with agaves and crinums. If there is sign of life in spring, I pay attention to the pots again, if not there is food for the worms in the compost pile. Nerine has survived for many years now.
