Nerine bowdenii in the garden

The Nerine bowdenii brings a touch of warmth to your autumnal garden. The bowdenii thrives in calcium-rich soil (border) or in a pot (garden or balcony). Bulbs must be planted in the spring, preferably in clumps of uneven numbers. The bulbs should not be planted too deep – the necks should just protrude above the ground. Space the bulbs approximately 20 cm apart. When potting the bowdenii, use potting soil with a pH higher than 5.5 and an EC value of between 0.5 and 0.7.

The bowdenii grows best in a spot where the bulbs can benefit from the full sun whilst being sheltered from wind and rain. Apart from regularly needing fresh water, the bulbs require minimal care. They grow to approximately 60-70 centimetres in height, and bloom from September through November.

The bowdenii is a perennial. Since the bowdenii bulb contains both the current year’s flower bud and the next year’s new growth, the bulb is particularly susceptible to wintry temperatures and frost. Therefore, to protect the delicate new flower bud, it is advisable to dig up the bulbs in November, once blooming has finished, and store them indoors. You can replant the bulbs in your borders or pots at the first sign of spring.

Nerine bowdenii in the home

The Nerine bowdenii is renowned for its open, frivolous flowers and looks gorgeous when displayed in a vase. As a result of advanced breeding techniques, the flowers are available all year round, mainly from specialist florists and webshops.

The bowdenii is striking whether arranged as a mono-floral display or in a mixed bouquet. As long as they are treated well, they are guaranteed to look radiant for at least 12 days. Always use a clean vase containing lukewarm water and flower food. Cut the stems diagonally before placing the flowers in the water. Place the vase in the semi-shade and refresh the water regularly.
