We offer a generous packet of fresh seeds from our sizeable stock beds of "Peruvian Lilies". These hardy and trouble-free spectacular plants form slowly expanding clumps of orchid-like orange and yellow blooms which improve unattended over the years.
Sow these fresh seeds at any time of year, storing them will make them go deeply dormant. Cover with compost or grit about 5mm deep and keep moist in a cool spot or the bottom of a fridge for around 4 weeks. They germinate very slowly indeed at between 5 and 10 degrees C so watch them carefully. but they can take up to a year to appear. They WILL NOT germinate if too warm. Grow in small pots before planting out in spring into a deeply-prepared bed.
Common name:Peruvian Lily, Alstroemeria aurea
