Isn’t Nature Wonderful

Some friends cam to see us last October and they gave us the corm of an Amaryllis, I duly followed the instructions and this was the result

This is how it happened

I just hope I can keep it and get it to bloom next year, with a little advice from Horst I am sure I can

  1. Beautiful photos and lovely red Amaryllis 🙂 Amazing how it “was done!!”

  2. Hi Suki, I sent you an email, let me know if you got it or not.
    Next time you repot the Amaryllis, mix a handfull of bonemeal with the new soil. Your amaryllis will love you for it. If you plant your Amaryllis outside this summer in your garden mix a handfull of Bonemeal in the hole, this will help the roots with the transition to the garden. Then in October bring the Bulb or Corm inside for a rest in a dark cool (around +12C) place for a month or 2. If you can’t find a cool place in your home, then just place it in a dark area and watch to see if it will start a leaf, if it starts a leaf bring it into the light( a nice sunny window).

  3. It is gorgeous! Are you talk to Amaryllis everyday Suki?
    I must do something about my space in here.
    Have a nice day,

  4. A friend always grew one for christmas – this year I followed suit when I saw them for sale in Sainsbury’s !! I was nt disappointed !
