Nerine and garden notes in NY

I have one lone Nerine bowdenii in bud in the greenhouse at the moment.  I 
grow all my nerines in pots, but I did try some outdoors in the ground ca 
10 years ago.  All were one clone of bowdenii, which was hardy with mulch 
in fields in The Netherlands.  Most died, and certainly none bloomed while 
in the ground.

In pots in the greenhouse in winter and outdoors in a lath house in summer, 
the various bowdenii seem to do fairly well.  Many bloom each year, mainly 
in November or December.
