A further update on my orange Alstromeria.
I lifted the polythene at the end of April 2015 and there were a few pieces around but nothing much. I went out every dry day and zapped any new shoots with glyphosate and I could gradually see an improvement.The ground was becoming quite compacted so at the end of June I dug it over thoroughly and was pleasantly surprised to find only a handful of white shoots..So far today on 15/7 I have seen no new growth. Fingers crossed time again. I will watch the area carefully until next spring and see what happens.
