Ordered these in spring and put bulbs on a windowsill beside a radiator - they took off in no time! Very nice size bulbs and there are at least 2 sturdy stalks on each bulb. Flowers are a gorgeous deep red and as big as my hand. Very pleased!

A touch of luxury!

Last Autumn/Winter was my first time growing these gorgeous plants and I can confidently say that growing this deep red Amaryllis in your home in the cold gloomy months of the year will make you feel cosy and special. Very easy to grow either in a vase with just water or planted with soil into a small pot, I grew them both ways. I started my bulbs off on top of a radiator but I doubt that it was necessary, the bulb would have woken up just from being kept wet, and gosh, when they do start sprouting they really keep you excited for weeks. I am now officially addicted to growing Amaryllis, I refuse to endure Winters without them!
