- Plant bulbs as soon as they arrive into small pots with compost and grit. Plant so that the top half of the bulb is above the compost surface. Wait until the roots fill the pot before planting out into the garden, at the same level.
Pure white flowers are carried on stems 50-60cm tall with one bulb sometimes producing two stems. One of the hardier nerines so a good choice for naturalising outdoors.
