Our Alstroemerias


By eirlys


I described last year how we protected our Alstroemerias throughout the Winter. This year they have repaid our care. As the following images show, I hope, we have had a glorious mixture.

We have quite a lot of the plants now all bought from Viv Marsh, Postal Plants. We visit Shrewsbury in September and never fail to visit his place. So far we have never left empty-handed and Viv himself has always made us welcome.

Point of interest: Each spray in Waitrose cost £1+ !

They are gorgeous so your extra care was certainly well worth it....

Snoopdog: Yes, you can visit his place and see the plants. He also has a lovely catalogue, both on line and in print.

His website is here:

Sometimes it is wise to phone up first to make sure Viv is there. It is well worth a visit.

Love Shrewsbury!

They're beautiful. I've never grown them but maybe I'll try them in the future ...
