The rest of my bulbs went just a few weeks ago, better late than never.

Hello donutsmrs,

Don't worry. Nerines are autumn-flowering bulbs so you don't need to plant them at the same time as spring-flowering bulbs. Planting in the spring will be fine. Have a look at our plant feature on Nerines at:

Hi Emma, that is very helpful thank you very much. I will now keep them until the spring then put them into a nice pot.

Good luck with your nerines.   I think they are fabulous flowers.   I do not seem to be lucky growing them, though.    Last year I was given some, and I thought maybe I would be third time lucky trying to grow them.   They did grow and flower, and I thought I had it cracked.   However this year I got leaves only and not a single flower.  Where did I go wrong?

I've never grown Nerines so this will be a challenge. I hope I am going to be able to them for a long time, sorry to hear that yours didnt last gardengirl6. They are just so pretty when in bloom and just what you need to see on a dull November day.

Personally, James, I don't think we have enough Venn diagrams in the garden.

I have come upon some tulip bulbs which escaped from being planted in October......is it too late now to do this?
