nerine bowdenii

I am trying for the second time to grow from bulbs Nerine Bowdenii,I know they should be planted  South facing  but I have a 3 foot wall there which causes shadows in the summer and the soil is usually damp,any other useful ideas on which part of the garden they might thrive,thanks

    They like a baking, so they don't want smaller plants over the bulbs. They like it dry and do better when the bulbs get crowded so don't split them up

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    up against a wall, fence, large stone or something that holds the summer heat (assuming we get any this year), they just will not do in my garden, too rich and too moist - especially after last year. 

  • Thanks for your replies I will take your advice and try one more time in a hotter place in the garden.
