AMARYLLIS
 
The amaryllis never fails to break the gloom of winter and provide pleasure with its beautiful blooms. The Dutch were considered the world leaders in creating new varieties of hybrids and cultivars. Today, Amaryllis come to us from the Netherlands as well as South Africa.
 
I most remember the Amaryllis from my childhood. Mom would pick up a bulb or two in the fall and plant them so that they would bloom at Christmas. She usually had 3 or 4 bulbs growing from the previous seasons. As the stocks grew on the various plants, we children would track the growth each day using a ruler and marking the ½ inch or so down on a tablet, reporting our measurements to mom. As time came closer to Christmas, the pot(s) would get moved to a cooler room if they needed to be slowed down or moved to a warmer sunnier room if they were growing too slow. To our amazement there would be at least one or two stocks with blooms on each plant by Christmas day. Years later, my sister is still making some of Mom’s old amaryllis bloom.
 
We just received our shipment of Amaryllis. Come see what has come in and get your bulbs started in order to have those blooms by Christmas.

STAY HEALTHY AND SAFE. HAPPY GARDENING!
