Alstroemeria 'Summer Pepper'
Part of the Summer Paradise collection, 'Summer Pepper' produces an abundance of bright red, funnel shaped blooms with yellow flecked centres on tall strong stems. Bushy in habit, when happily situated, can flower all summer long. Fabulous as cut flowers. (Photo courtesy of Ball Colegrave)
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. The removal of spent flower stems will encourage more flowering.
Water thoroughly or stand pot in a container of water for half and hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in hole so that it is level with the surrounding ground, and re fill firming as necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a general fertiliser
