Reviewed 3rd September 2018 by Mrs Chapman

All three purple alstromerias arrived in good order and thrived well in pots - one being planted in a proper planter - the other two eventually being planted into the garden. The one in the planter has done really well as did the two in the garden all producing lovely blooms. However, just lately on the the 'garden' ones has begun to look unwell and I think will not survive. So overall, very pleased - lovely colour and producing good blooms - just a shame about the one that I think will no do and I have no idea why as they have all been treated the same.
