Fri. 12th Oct. Nerine Day at Exbury Gardens

Another magnificent display in the Five Arrows Gallery - in spite of the much later flowering of Nerine Sarniensis experienced by all growers this year.

No, not a breakthrough in developing a new Nerine colour! It's a yellow Lycoris in the centre of this display.

Beautiful examples of Nerine Bowdenii being grown by Margaret Owen, which she kindly brought along for the interest of other members.


Congratulations to the team, under the leadership of Roy Prior, on gaining a Silver Gilt award - a remarkable achievement in a year when Nerines and Amaryllids have been coming into bloom so much later than usual!
