How many times do you try a plant before giving up?
Two winters, two dead alstroemeriae
(despite a thick bark mulch as recommended each time).
Would you just assume the garden wasn't suitable for it / you weren't clever enough to look after it, or would you try again?
Thompson and Morgan have three alstros for £10 and I must say I'm tempted.
However, if someone gives me a plant I nurse and coddle it like nothing you've seen before and if it dies I'm really upset. Apparently, I'm not on my own, other gardeners feel the same.
Sometimes, in the words of AnniD, right plant, right place, dies anyway 😁.
Get something else. Alstromeria don't want to be there
Could you try something with a similar flower - day lilies?
Life's too short to faff with things that just don't suit
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
