Flowering and bulb growth of Nerine bowdenii

, : Flowering and bulb growth of Nerine bowdenii. Acta Horticulturae (47): 241-249

A review is given of 4 years' investigations on the effects of storage treatment, planting date, plant density, bulb size and climatic conditions on growth and flowering. Year-round flowering could be obtained by storing the bulbs at 2 deg C and varying the planting date.
