When I was shopping the other day, I saw a display of amaryllis and paperwhites. I like to plant these every year so I will have beautiful blooms by Christmas. I bought a bright red amaryllis (Red Lion) and a bag of the paperwhites (narcissus).
Time to plant.
Riley sits nearby and watches.
For the amaryllis, all you do is place the soil disc in the pot that's included in the box, and add water. When the water is soaked into the soil, mix with your hands.
Then, plant the bulb in the soil. Just cover about 1/4 of the bulb. And that's it! Keep it out of direct sunlight.
Now for the paperwhites (or nacrissus)...nothing could be easier. Just place the bulbs in some soil and give them water.
Keep them wet and they should grow into tall plants. Put them in pretty pots or urns, you can even cover the ground with a bit of moss.
And by Decemeber, hopefully, I can show you the beautiful blooms!
