Pot up plug plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in frost free conditions. When Alstroemeria plugs are fully rooted into their pots and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant Peruvian Lilies outdoors in a sunny or semi shaded position in moist, well drained soil. Alternatively, grow Alstroemeria in containers using a good quality compost.
Throughout the growing season, water Peruvian lilies regularly and feed container grown plants each month. When picking alstroemeria pluck the flowers rather than cutting as plucking stimulates the rhizome encourage further growth. In autumn, cut back the old Alstroemeria flower stems and apply a dry mulch of chipped bark or straw to the base of the plant to protect it from cold winter weather. Alstroemeria prefers to be left undisturbed but can be divided in autumn or spring if clumps become overcrowded.
