Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

I recently read on the internet - not here - that #hippeastrum bulbs are expensive. Well 2 stems, one with 5 flowers one with 7. Has been in flower for over a month - I’ll call that good value #amaryllis #houseplantsjoho worth every penny❤️

@ukgardentags took the survey and then when I posted this I remembered a thought I had. Don’t know whether it’s a possibility but it would be great to be able to add a photo to a feed when you are discussing something with other members. 📷

That's beautiful mine just has leaves no buds formed this year!😟 are they supposed to flower every year ??

comment
valjones-hughes

@rosiebug I enjoyed this Amaryllis so much I began researching how to get it to flower again next year - failed in the past, mostly due to not being committed!This seemed the most comprehensive information I found so I’m going to give it a try http://www.usna.usda.gov/Gardens/faqs/AmaryllisBloom.html

That’s a great vase for them? Do you grow a lot of varieties?

3w
comment
valjones-hughes

Yes the vase is just right, keeps the bulb just above water. I try to find a new (to me) variety each year and grow my old ones when I can. I was looking at some today but couldn’t make up my mind!

Absolutely stunning Val @valjones-hughes Love it!! I've never tried them as thought they were very difficult to look after😃💕

comment
valjones-hughes

I haven’t found them to be difficult Shona (@sho47) just like most other indoor bulbs. This one is a bit different as it’s growing in water in the same way that hyacinths can be grown.
