Day 77 of 365 days in the community garden

Rejuvenate your Alstroemeria by removing old, brown flower stalks (pictured) - this will stimulate the plants to grow more stems, and to bulk up. Alstroemerias are long-lived perennials, and a great cut-flower with a long vase life. The best way to harvest the flowers is not to cut them, but to gently tug them at the base and pull the entire flower stalk out.

"Love is the flower you've got to let grow." John Lennon
