Here Nerine is a winter dormant, spring/summer growing bulb - yes I am 'oop
North' in England [1], but the west coast is warmer than Yorkshire in winter,
temperatures barely got below zero in winter 2011/12. Maybe the summers don't
get hot enough. Anyway the nerine are flowering at the moment, after a long
growing season starting in spring.
