Hello. I have some Nerines which sadly will need to be moved as I will be having some work done in the garden over the winter. If I lift them after they have flowered, can I store them over the winter and re-plant them in spring when the work is finished? Thanks.



If you can find a pot or three big enough, I suggest you dig them up and put them in pots until you can replant. They'll be fine in those over winter, the bigger the pots the better, in soil/potting compost, obviously. Just dig up the clump, don't remove the soil from around them, and transfer into a container with drainage holes.

Thank you for the advice. I have now dug them up and have too many for my available space. If anyone would like to collect them (I live in Solihull) you are welcome. I have about 100. Please reply to
