How to grow Nerine Bulbs

  • Plant Nerine Bulbs in a sun-drenched location, allowing the radiant blooms to bask in the warmth of the late summer sun. Full sun ensures these bulbs unveil their full potential in a spectacular display.
  • Gently place the bulbs in the soil, burying them at a depth of about 15 cm with their necks just above the soil surface. Choose a well-drained location that enhances their graceful presence.
  • Nerine thrives in well-draining soil with a touch of organic matter. 
  • Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season, especially when the blooms are emerging. Adequate hydration is the key to the continuous flowering of Nerine.

How to Care for Nerines

  • Treat your Nerine to a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season. This feeding routine ensures a continuous burst of floral opulence, enhancing the vibrancy of each bloom.
  • Allow the foliage to wither naturally after the flowering period. This process allows the bulbs to store energy for the next growing season. Resist the urge to remove foliage prematurely.
  • Nerines are hardy and can be left in the ground, they will flower the next year and eventually spread to create a thick display of pink flowers in late summer.
