PLANT INFORMATION AND
Alstroemeria are tuberous rooted plants with lily like blooms from June to August. Natives of South America, the plants are tender and must be dug in the late fall and re-planted in the spring in USDA zone 6b and north. They make excellent cut flowers or container specimens as well as lovely, long-blooming bedding plants.
The plants are easily propagated by dividing and can be
sown from seed with some care. FOR TRANSPLANTS FROM
SEED: If planting in the fall when seeds become ripe,
plant in pots or trays. Keep moist at 55F. Transplant
seedlings when they are 2 inches tall in flats of rich soil.
Seedlings should be kept out of frost for the winter in a cold
frame or greenhouse. Transplant outdoors in the spring when
temperatures do not fall below 55F. Planting from stored
seed is a bit more difficult and requires some patience to break dormancy.
Soak seed for 24 hours prior to sowing. Plant in pots or
trays and keep moist at 80F for 4 weeks. Transfer seed trays
to a temperature of 40F for 4 weeks, than after this time,
increase heat to 70F for 4 weeks. Transplant
seedlings when they reach 2 inches in height. Plant outdoors
when all danger of frost is past. In cooler climates, dig
roots in the late fall and store them in boxes or trays, layered
in hay or straw. In warmer climates (south of USDA zone 6b)
you may simply cover the plants with a layer of straw or
mulch for the winter.
