How do I look after my alstromeria over the winter?



Most are hardy, but in colder regions, a mulch laid over the top will help protect them. Unless they're in pots, in which case they must be moved somewhere frost free.

David, if you put your county into your profile you'll be able to get more specific help.

I have dozens of alstros here and they're generally recognised as tough plants.

If you're in the far north of the country use a mulch, as mentioned, if you're not just leave them be.
Mine were fine in temps of minus 12 ..... so knowing where you garden would have meant more specific info.
