I 've just got back from Jersey CI and brought back a bag of the 'tall' Jersey lilly bulbs, what is their correct name please & how deeply do I plant them, they made a spectacular show over there! Many thanks Ann
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
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 sueone , I was very lucky they where here, when I brought the place, some very nice fine white Nerines are also here, and the pink . they like to be dry when dorment,
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
Hope they grow ok for you. I have just looked , with a torch, and found a few seeds of the White one I have, Not sure how they send, does anyone want them
