Amaryllis in Bloom – Amaryllis are surprisingly easy to grow, says horticulturist Christian Curless of Colorblends.com. All that’s needed is a bulb, potting soil and a seven- or eight-inch pot with a drainage hole. Pot the bulb with its top third positioned above the soil line. Water well at planting, then water only as needed, when the soil becomes dry to the touch. Allow eight to 12 weeks from planting to bloom. One large bulb produces at least two stems, sometimes three, each bearing four or more velvety flowers.

Paperwhite Narcissus 'Nir' – Here's a tip for winter gardeners who enjoy growing fragrant paperwhite bulbs indoors. Most paperwhite narcissus are strongly scented, but some varieties smell better than others. The standard variety 'Ziva' is powerfully fragrant with a heavy sweetness that pleases many but turns off others. For a different paperwhite scent experience, Colorblends suggests a newer bulb variety, 'Nir'. Its perfume is rich but not overpowering. Other 'Nir' benefits include larger, showier white flowers and shorter stems that are less likely to flop over. For paperwhites and other fall-planted bulbs at wholesale pricing, with a minimum order of $60, see Colorblends.com or call 1-888-847-8637.
