Buy Alstroemeria 'Saturne' (Planet Series) alstroemeria: Exotic-looking blooms

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow growing to average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The large outer tepals of this exotic-looking Peruvian lily have heart-shaped tips and a warm apricot-yellow hue, while the yellow inner petals have numerous near-black markings. Compact in habit, it is suitable for pots and containers, while the flowers last for ages after being cut and added to a vase.

  • Garden care: Always wear gloves when working with Peruvian lilies since contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation. After flowering cut back the faded flower-stems. In autumn provide a dry mulch of bracken or bark chippings to protect young plants.

This is such a lovely plant and this Planet series of plants are really the best. Ok, this plant is not that slow growing (well, I don't think so) especially if you buy a 2litre pot from Crocus - anything smaller would be slow to mature into a plant that would produce plants(Alstromera only). As soon as this was planted it started to grow and 6 months later it produced beautiful flowers in quantity and it still keeps growing and multiplying. I have various alstromeria plants in containers and direct in beds in the garden and both ways produce splendid flowers which are marvellous when used as cut flowers in the house. They last for ages but are best au naturel outdoors. A few years ago I bought a plant to start a new garden and was so impressed that I have bought over the years many more plants of and you can't beet Crocus. The plants arrive in a healthy condition (I have never had a bad plant from C), well packaged so they don't move in transit but someone has really researched this and you do not get over packaging to dispose of like many other companies. If you plant in containers then you must divide the plant every couple of years or so or else overcrowding does happen quickly. The ones planted directly into the garden benefit from less dividing unless you have a very small garden because they do spread. The display of flowers is amazing and creates such an impact. Each spring I spread a couple of handfuls of growmore etc around the base of the plant and as long as it is well watered and in mid to full sun it grows away.

I have a yellow alstroemeria which has flowered well. Now the flowers have faded, small bulbs have appeared on the stems where the flowers were. What should I do with them - cut them off and plant them, or leave them on there? Can't find any reference to this anywhere. Can you advise please

Hello, I would not bother trying to propagate them by seed, so remove the faded flowers (and these seed heads) as soon as they appear and it will encourage the plant to produce more flowers.

Perennials for the cutting garden

At some stage in June, your garden will be a glorious affair full of scent and soft flower. Placing a posy from the garden, close to a family hub like the kitchen table, unites your home and garden as effectively as having a huge picture window. You don’t
