I buy Alstroemerias for Mum's room ... lots of comments from the Carers ... mainly what are they and don't they last a long time!

They last even longer on the plant too! :)

My OH agreed we need to buy this one.....after seeing it on the TV....hurrah!

Yes! It was on Beechgrove this week...is that where he saw it? The thing with all Gentlemen is they must have the idea themselves! ;)

You teaser! After seeing yours a couple of years ago I got one, loved it and then lost it last winter which was a mild one, I've read they like really well drained soil or as Beechgrove said, keep in a pot! I need a replacement!

It was Beechgrove Karen, and to be be fair to my OH, I said this is the one I like and he agreed lol

Its very good of you to be so fair. Imded. ;) in my house, an agreement with me is a rare treasure. My OH has a quest in life..to always have a better idea. We even have a song for it here..its like his 'theme' i kid you not! Lol!

Does it Karen, well well. So sad I lost mine, it was beautiful and grew so well.

Sorry Dawn...can only think it must be much colder where you are in winter. Your photos in the past would suggest that. We benefit from being so close to the coast of course.

Yes that must be the problem Karen.

Strange DA - one of the complaints on other forums is that it's invasive!

Really Meanie! I have A. summer breeze, that one is fine. I will get another Indian Summer and choose a better spot for it and see how it goes and hope it gets a little invasive, thank you
