Welcome to DG Saggita!

Jersey lily could be either Nerine sarniensis http://images.google.com/images?q=nerine%20sarniensis&hl=en&lr=&c2coff=1&client=safari&rls=en-us&sa=N&tab=wi or Amaryllis belladonna http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&hl=en&lr=&c2coff=1&client=safari&rls=en-us&q=amaryllis+belladonna&btnG=Search

H i there
If you have a Nerine , do not plant them to deep, they like To be a bit exposed,
Although mine flower in the shade.

Hi Saggita, bet Jersey was beautiful, not been there, been to Guernsy loads of times though.Where is Birchington?is it near the coast?

What a fantastic colour bootandall, I always thought they were only pink, checked out baas link too, and see they come in a variety.

Another plant I've tried and lost, though according to the books my front garden should be perfect for them. I use Agapanthus instead, they seem to thrive there.Hot and dry.

Thanks everyone! Birchington is on the North Thanet coast, near Margate, in Kent. Excellent growing area for all sorts as have sea on 2 sides but the wind is a killer. Can grow most of the plants mum grows in Devon, excellent hunting-ground down there too
