Nerine notes

I wrote a series of posts on Nerine on my blog last week, which members 
might find interesting.

Matt Mattus's beautiful pictures of cut stems remind me that at the Nerine & 
Amaryllid Society meeting last Saturday the subject of virus - often a 
problem in Nerine - was raised. It was suggested that a principle method of 
transmission was through cutting the flowers and passing it on in the sap 
from plant to plant, so it may be wise to clean the knife with spirit 
between each plant while cutting stems.
