Happy New Year with Amaryllis! Beautiful flowering bulbs to brighten a long winter.


Happy New Year with Amaryllis! Beautiful flowering bulbs to brighten a long winter.
It's been a tough 2020. Let's start the New Year gardening! 

I usually start looking around for Amaryllis bulbs in different colours in November and plant them right away in hope of beautiful blooms around the Holidays. They come ready in kits and the best place (and cheaper) to spot them is at supermarkets. 

These kits have the bulb, soil and a plastic pot. All you need to do is add water and watch them grow. Take a look at the growing process. Isn't it amazing?

Here are 2021 beauties! They opened on January 1. We woke up to this amazing surprise! Aren't they stunning?

Last year I found bigger and longer Amaryllis bulbs like these. It really depends on what is available. These ones stole the show. I absolutely loved them!

These bulbs are very easy to care for. If you are lucky and with good care they might bloom again in the Spring.  

NOTE: Once your bulbs are finished blooming you need to cut the stems down. Remove them from the soil and place them in a paper bag. They need to rest before starting a new growing cycle.

Happy gardening!
