All the gardener that receives this gift needs to do it plant the bulb, water it and provide sunlight, warmth and a spectacular bloom will emerge within a few days to a couple of weeks. After the bloom has faded it is cut off and the plant is kept watered and warm over the winter months, in the spring you can plant the bulbs in your container garden or in your garden beds and prepare them for the next blooming cycle.
Since the work involved in getting the Amaryllis bulbs in these kits to bloom has been taken care of by the commercial grower, they are almost foolproof plants that gardeners of all skill levels can make bloom at least once. With so many hybrids available Amaryllis bulbs can keep the interest of a gardener for years. Make Amaryllis bulb kits a gift you give this year. Below is a gallery of some of the Amaryllis bulbs in my collection. Related post: Bulb by Anna Pavord.
