Most nerines are tender greenhouse bulbs, but Nerine bowdenii is the nearest to being hardy, and well worth planting outdoors in a warm sunny border backed by the shelter of a wall. Nerines are South African bulbs, widely planted in warmer regions for their late display of rich pink flowers. It works well in a mixed herbaceous border and makes an excellent cut flower.
For best results grow Nerine bowdenii in well-drained soil in full sun, ideally sheltered by a south-or west-facing wall. Divide congested clumps in spring.

Good EXCEPT FOR the contradictory information about when to divide, which is my main concern!
Is is Feb-March OR late summer, please?
