Nerine is not exactly known as a garden plant. Previously, this flower bulb only grew as a pot plant or cut flower in cold greenhouses and conservatories.
A new range of Nerine’s and Amarine’s is very suitable for the garden. We want to know more about that.
So, an interview was conducted with the well-known Nerine breeder/breeder, Kitty de Jong from Agro Fleur Select from Roelofarendsveen.
Kitty talks enthusiastically about these two bulbous plants
Agro Fleur Select has managed to build up a nice collection of Nerine Bowdenii. These are perfect for the garden. Especially the late flowering, September to November, is a big plus.
You can already find them frequently in English gardens, such as in Wisley Garden, one of the world’s largest gardens. Exbury Garden also houses the National Nerine Collection of England, maintained by Nick de Rothschild.
