Service prompt, as usual. Plant lovely, even flowering again - November but have cut the stems to enjoy the new flowers. Am looking at them now, beautiful!

Plants are sub standard in my opinion- I have other alstroemerias and in comparison, these are weak unhealthy plants that have not grown well. Also very pricey. Won’t buy from SR again which is a shame.

Lovely plant, vigorous with many flower spikes. Looked really beautiful until the recent storm flattened it. I am sure it will recover. Great colour.
