Hardy Nerine Study Day
In October 2007 a Hardy Nerine Study Day was held at RHS Garden, Wisley, jointly sponsored by RHS Herbaceous Plant Committee and the Nerine & Amaryllid Society.
A 64 page Report of the Proceedings of the Study Day was produced and can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
RHS Trial of Nerine Bowdenii
The scale of the diversity of Nerine bowdenii was revealed by the Hardy Nerine Study Day in October 2007. From that point onwards the idea of a trial grew.
The trial agreed was an RHS off-site trial, run jointly by the RHS and the Nerine and Amaryllid Society (NAAS). Two sites were chosen to test the hardiness of the entries: one in the north (The Patch, Acton Pigott, Shropshire – site of the then National Plant Collection) and one in the south (Bramdean House, Bramdean, Hampshire – site of an extensive collection of nerines owned by Mrs Victoria Wakefield).
