Growing AmaryllisAmaryllis 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. For a broad selection of amaryllis and other fall-planted bulbs at wholesale pricing, with a minimum order of $60, see Colorblends.com or call 1-888-847-8637.
