Buy Alstroemeria Bulbs

You will also need to add a support (such as a length of garden cane) to the plant for the alstroemeria stem, which can reach up to a metre in height. When growing in pots move the pot to a sheltered position in winter as plants in pots are less protected from freezing conditions.

For dividing and moving alstroemeria it is best to do this early in the spring, ensuring that you take all the roots out when lifting the plant to give it the best possible chance to re-establish itself in its new home.

This chart shows how much extra shipping will be added to your if the order is being sent after Oct. 25th. Please note that the charges are determined first by the state and then by the number of bulbs being ordered. Please check the chart to determine if you will be charged an additional amount. For example: Select the state where the bulbs will be shipped (i.e. CA). Count the number of bulbs being ordered (10 daffodils, 10 tulips, 10 crocus and 1 hippeastrum would equal 31 bulbs). The additional shipping charge for 31 bulbs to CA after Oct. 25th would equal $10.00. Of course, if the order is shipped early enough, there is NO additional charge!

Alstroemeria plants prefer full sun to partial shade and a well drained humus rich soil. Alstroemeria bulbs grow well in a container and will bloom from spring through summer. Flowering from spring onwards and then die back at the end of summer to early autumn, its then that they can cut back and larger clumps can be be divided if required

As long as you can provide a warm, sheltered, sunny spot in free-draining soil, alstroemerias should be happy in your garden. The flowers attract bees and other pollinating insects, so alstroemerias are perfect for a wildlife-friendly garden.There is a wide range of cultivars to choose from, with flower colours that will match or contrast with your existing plants. They grow to various heights to suit all positions in borders and even containers:

There are 15 alstroemerias with an RHS Award of Garden Merit, which shows they performed well in RHS trials, so are reliable choices. To browse photos and descriptions of alstroemerias, go to RHS Find a Plant. You can search by flower colour, height, growing conditions, RHS Award of Garden Merit and more, to help narrow down your choices.

Most alstroemerias are hardy and should survive the winter outdoors once their roots are well established and have grown deep into the ground.However, for the first couple of years after planting, apply a thick layer of mulch in autumn to the soil around the plant, to help insulate the roots. Composted bark is an ideal mulch, in a layer about 20cm (8in) deep.

Propagation: There are two methods when propagating Alstroemeria flowers. You can plant the seeds, or you can dig up the bulbs and divide the rhizomes. To do this successfully, cut the plant six inches above ground ten days before you plan to retrieve the bulbs. When you dig up the bulbs, be sure to pull out all of the roots and growing points.

As you replant the bulbs, place them six inches down into pots or 12 to 18 inches apart in the ground. After about 10-15 weeks, your Alstroemeria will begin to flower and continue to do so for two to four years.

Alstroemerias are commonly known as Peruvian Lilies. Alstroemeria plants have beautiful, vibrant colours with orchid like blooms. They flower right through the summer months and well into autumn. These hardy perennials make superb cut flowers that last longer than most in a bouquet. Alstroemerias come in a variety of types, with some favouring patio containers, beds and borders. Climbing alstroemerias have a vigorous habit and bold, bright colours with delicate fine black markings providing a summer display of gorgeous blooms.

Our seasonal mixed bouquets feature a number of blooms and greens, including gerbera daisies, mums of all kinds, spray roses, hypericum berries, alstroemeria, Asiatic lilies, ornamental kale, snapdragons, carnations, hydrangea, spray stock and seasonal greenery.

Alstroemeria is a perennial plant also known as Lily of the Incas or Peruvian lily. For best results, plant bulbs rather than seeds. You can plant bulbs in containers or directly in your garden. An alstroemeria plant may grow as tall as 48 inches (120 cm), and its flowers range in color from white, pink, and salmon to bright orange, red, and purple.

Two methods are commonly used to grow Alstroemerias. You can either buy grown Alstroemeria plants, which can be transplanted into your garden, or purchase bulbs that you grow yourself. Transplants should be set in the soil in springtime, after all danger of frost has passed. Bulbs should be planted in late summer to early fall, in a sunny location, about 8 inches deep.

School has started, the first football game is history, can autumn be far behind? Many gardeners are redirecting their efforts from flower production to ensuring the survival of their tender perennials. Tender perennials are not winter hardy in our part of the country, but with a little help from us, they can survive for many years. Tender perennials are those plants that need to be dug from the soil in the fall and wintered over in a frost-free location. Luckily we don't have to keep the entire plant, only the bulb, corm, or tuber are stored. New growth occurs from these structures after replanting next spring.Popular tender perennials considered tender in Iowa include gladioli, cannas, dahlias, tuberous begonias and caladiums. Other lesser known tender perennials include the Peruvian lily also known as alstroemeria, agapanthus, freesia, and calla lilies. Survival of tender perennials requires more attention than simply digging the particular storage organ and putting it in a box in the basement. Specific storage conditions must be met to successfully store the plants through the winter.Dig tender perennials just before or soon after a killing frost. If left until after a frost, the foliage will be killed and the storage organ will need to be dug within a few days to prevent rot-causing organisms from entering through the damaged stem.Corm producing plants such as gladioli, corn lily, and bugle lily can be stored in a similar fashion. Before digging, trim the foliage to within a few inches of the corm. Dig carefully to prevent damaging the corm. Brush off remaining soil. Allow the corms to cure for several weeks in a dry location with good air circulation. After drying, cut or twist off the foliage and discard the shriveled remains of last year's corm. A new corm is produced each year on top of the old one. Store the corms in old nylon stockings or onion bags at temperatures between 35 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The bulbs of Siberian lily and Mexican shellflower can be treated the same way.Dahlia, alstroemeria, and gloriosa lily produce tuberous roots. To store these plants over the winter, trim back the foliage of the plant to within a few inches after the first light frost. Dig carefully to avoid injury. With some soil attached, pack the roots between 2 and 3 inch layers of vermiculite, peat moss, sawdust, or wood shavings. Store at 35 to 45 degrees. Check frequently to remove those that shrivel or rot.The tubers of tuberous begonias and elephant's ear (Colocasia esculenta) and the rhizomes of calla lilies should be dug before a hard frost. Cut the tops back and allow 2 inches of stem to remain. Dry for 2 to 3 weeks in a frost-free location, shake off the soil and remove the dried stem. Pack in peat moss, vermiculite, sawdust, or wood shavings and store at 45 to 55 degrees. Caladium (Caladium xhortulanum) tubers should be cured for a week in a warm location and stored in packing material at a temperature around 60 degrees.Canna and butterfly lily rhizomes should be dug after the foliage has been killed by a frost. Cut the stems back to about 4 inches above the soil. Dig the rhizomes and dry in a frost-free location for about two weeks. Place the roots in shallow boxes; they do not require covering. Store at 45 to 50 degrees.The storage organs of most tender perennials multiply quite quickly in the garden. It is important to leave them intact until spring. Any injury incurred prior to storage will increase the chances for rot to occur. In the spring cut the rhizomes and tubers apart making sure at least one or two dormant buds are present on each section. Share the extras with relatives, neighbors, and friends.The major problem homeowners have in storing these tender perennials is finding a location with the correct temperature. Many of us no longer have an unheated basement or extra bedroom in which to store the tender perennials adequately. Normal interior temperatures are too warm. Most garages, even though attached, will be too cold for survival. If this is your situation, it would be best to grow these plants as annuals instead of perennials.This article originally appeared in the September 13, 1996 issue, p. 157. 041b061a72
