Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily)

Posted: 26/03/2013 at 18:53
Rosa they can be slow from bare roots. I grew the so-called Princess lilies .just 3 varieties but they were wonderful in flower. Trouble is they become somewhat dormant in mid summer leaving a big gap in he border. To overcome this I dug them up to replant behind perennials that disguise this gap. Alstroemerias do spread so best where they can't "bully" their neighbours. The varieties I grew didnt seed .i grew hybrids...but still a bit thuggish

...oh sound like a mischievous scampy fellow.
Nigelcoad .....well, you're looking for a new name and you've given some clues. Maybe someone will come up with some suggestions.
Me? I'm hyper, serious, mischievous...always cracking silly jokes ( the more nervous i am the more assinine the jokes are) im outspoken but shy, passionate about matters and people dear to me, bit of a perfectionist ....although knowing I'm far, far, far from perfect. Get angry, often rowing, am opinionated, getting old but still think I'm young, and get relaxed with my plants. Tha, Tha, that's all folks!

Hey nut. ...I thought you were a "he"....better be more respectful,towards you from now on...ha ha
Tina I got you pretty well then. Verdun is my middle name from my legend of an uncle I never met but wish I had.
Rosa...Got you reasonably well too!
Dmball ..further to above, my uncle Verdun was named after that place Verdun for some reason. I know it was a bloody battle there. I like the name's not Vernon or Verdon, both of which are great names but I feel it carries something???
Palaisglide, I imagine a Len Goodman type...debonaire and cultured. How's that for sucking up? about you? Any info we should know about you? Your picture shows a fox so no clue there....or is there?

Rosa, it suggests flamboyance, whimsy ness, and a need to avoid routine.
I imagine dark hair, Italian-flecked English speech, of course, and your gsrdening style would be to include everything that takes your fancy......I will check out your forum info after I've posted this.

Tina, your singing of course? How's Ike these days? are an extrovert, prob bit loud, fun loving, and I imagine a garden with lots of hot colours. You prob choose a bold colour in preference to a subtle one. You prob drive bit too fast too.
You prob think you are "simply the best".......
However, I bet you are the one people come to for support.
Close? Prob not. See? All in the name...not!!
So what does "Verdun" conjure up for you? I got broad shoulders too Tina

I love some of the names posted on the forum. Some make me chuckle by their inventiveness. I think it gives me an insight too into the characters behind them. The shy ones I guess have reserved names and the extroverts have "cocky" ones??? I guess it's like trying to imagine what the radio presenters look like!
