What a super clump.

Thanks Siris . . . I would like to divide this clump and have been advised to do so in Spring.

I'm envious - I could never get these to grow!

These thrive on neglect!

I quite agree, Shirley to my own amazement finding a flowering clump hidden under two shrubs.

P'raps I should have another go? See what happens..

Anget, I found this info. for you:

Plant your bulbs as soon as they arrive, each one into a 9cm pot filled with a mixture of 50% multipurpose compost and 50% loam based potting compost, such as John Innes No 2.

When planting, make sure that the roots are spread out and only the bottom half of the bulbs are below the compost level. The top half of the bulb must remain above it. Wait until the roots fill the pot before planting out into the garden, at the same level.

They do best in a well-drained site with full sun and love it at the base of a sunny, south-facing wall. A good summer baking encourages plenty of flowers in autumn. Water them in well.

Thank you for going to the trouble, Shirley. I will have another go.

These are really super! Lovely colour, Shirley, they definitely brighten up the garden on a duller autumn day.

Kate, treat yourself to some Nerine bulbs . . .

I’m thinking I should. When is the best time to plant them, Shirley?

Kate, in the Autumn, any time soon really.
