Today I noticed buds on the taller alstroemeria-watch this space
I have alstroemeria coming up through my tarmac drive! These are tough plants that spread quite fast, have beautiful flowers and can put up with a lot. Just my kind of plant!
Oh they look lovely!
Sadly mine seem to have been attacked by slugs but as with everything, lets wait and see!
Of all the plants in my garden the Alstroemeria have not been affected at all by this dreadful weather. They are all standing upright and flowering their socks off. Lets here it for the Alstroes!!!
Hi everyone - photo as promised of one of the Alstroemeria plants in flower - I took it as soon as the flower buds opened and although they have opened more the rain has battered them a bit - thankfully, not as much as some other flowers !!
I just noticed this weekend that two of the Alstroemeria seeds have germinated - without having to put them in the fridge - not sure whether the remaining 10 seeds will follow but anything is better than nothing !!
Think I'm going to follow the advice from sparklepinksunflower and pick the flower stems for indoors where, because of the continuing wet weather, they can be better appreciated !!
