A much more subtle colour than the usual one! Have you got a lot of Nerines?

I seem to have more since I put my spade through the bulb!

I just wouldn't have the courage to copy that! You must have 'green feet' as well as 'green fingers'!!!! :-)

It wasn't deliberate! I thought there was a space to squeeze another plant in. Some bulbs can be propogated this way

Is this a "magic lily" I always have a zillion leaves in the spring and just a few stalks in summer. I transplanted them, the bulbs look great, but I only get a few flowers to grow. What gives?

Nerines need full sun and their necks above soil. I also plant them in clumps so you get several flowers together

Hi Andrew, I have some Nerine Bowendii indoors and they have finished flowering and are producing leaves. Should I cut the flower stalks off and leave the foliage or cut everything back?

I would advise cutting the flowering stems off as the bulbs will now try and set seed which will use their energy. But leave theleaves to die down naturally as these will build the bulbs up again while they are still green
