Nerine Thoughts

Nerine sarneinsis ‘Corusca Major’ has been growing outside in a cold frame
here year round for five years. I’ve learned a thing or two about its
culture, but I still have some things to learn. If kept too dry during the
summer dormancy, the bulbs shrivel alarmingly: bulbs the size of a hen’s egg
become no thicker than one of my fingers. When watering is resumed, they
eventually plump up. 


Some years they bloom, some they do not. When they do bloom, it’s usually in
late October, early November. 


The plant is easily grown, but I have no idea what to do to get consistent
performance from this plant.
