Adding Alstroemeria to your Cutting Patch with Ben from Crosslands Nursery
Play • 37 min
Our most requested guest thus far, please welcome Ben (AKA Alstroemeria Ben) to the show! Alstroemeria make wonderful cut flowers because they last incredibly well in the vase and are wonderful to arrange with. They come in a whole host of colours and a perennial so come back year on year. They spread too, so your Alstromeria patch should get more and more productive as time goes on! We are so excited to chat to Ben about his British Flowers Rock campaign and about the pressing need for more education for the public on where their flowers are coming from. He also shares the basics of how to add some Alstromeria to your cutting patch - how to space them, care for them, pick them and more.  Let’s Grow, Girls is the cut flower podcast is a weekly dose of upbeat, friendly flower growing expertise! For those who grow a few flowers in their garden, to those who want to know how to start a flower farm. Subscribe to be notified of our weekly episodes.
