Description

Flowering: 6-8 weeks after planting
Planting: on pots from February onwards, in the ground: after mid May
Plant depth: the lower half of the bulb should be in the soil.

In the garden
Amaryllis can be planted in the garden after the last frosts (15 May) on a sunny spot and in a moist, well -rained and well-manured soil. After 6-8 weeks it starts flowering for a long period. Is can stay in the ground until winter. Before the first frost, dig it out, cut the foliage but keep the roots.
Keep the bulb at room temperature in a dry place. New flowers have already been formed inside the bulb. After the frosts you can plant it back in your garden. With this method it will flower again year after year. Choose another spot every year because amaryllis likes fresh ground.

On pots
Our bulbs can be treated like any other amaryllis bulb. Plant it in potting soil and place it anywhere you like in your home, preferably not in full sunlight, and water it every now and then. At first two stems will appear on which the flowers grow. The leaves will grow later.
If you like, you can plant the bulb in your garden after the frost period. It will produce no more flowers, only some foliage. However it will develop new flowers inside the bulb. Take it out of the ground before the frost starts, cut off the leaves, keep the roots and leave it in a dry place at room temperature.
You can either pot it in February and enjoy the flowers in your home, or wait until mid May and plant it back in your garden where it will bloom again.
