Just to correct Mr Nick's interpretation of my geographical experience in
growing Nerine bowdenii: I have only been 'oop north', as he puts it, for 2
months. Previously I was at Colesbourne in the Cotswolds, a notoriously cold
area, and my long term cultivation of N. bowdenii (20 + yrs) is at my
parents' garden in the banana belt of the Thames Valley, just west of
London.  In all cases that I have ever known, N. bowdenii is a strictly
summer-growing plant.
