October Plant Of The Month – Nerine bowdenii

Nerines give a fabulous splash of colour as we head into Autumn.  Their lily-like flowers are in various shades of bright pink to crimson.  The leaves appear after the flowers.

Their preferred spot is at the base of a West or South facing wall in full sun.

They grow from bulbs which should be planted in Spring.  They like a hot, dry spot and in Winter benefit from a dry mulch to protect them from the cold.

After flowering deadhead and then once the foliage has begun to die back cut it down.  If moved they may take a year or two to flower
