Care Tips Amaryllis are a tender bulb from Brazil and so need to be grown inside - frost free - when it's cold, but once the frosts are over and the nights are no longer cold, they can be moved outside until the end of summer. Think of them as a tender garden - not a house-plant and treat them much as you would a precious pot of freesia or non hardy agapanthus. Grow inside in a bright, warm, sunny place - ideally 20 degrees. Free from draughts of an open window.
