Potting up Giant Bulbs to Beat the Winter Blues
It's hard to believe looking at these lovely large bulbs - but in a couple short months I will have the ultimate in floral tonics - 6 giant pots of amaryllis (Hippeastrum)in bloom. Always the procrastinator, I should have gotten them potted up weeks ago for Christmas bloom. But it's kind of nice to think that come January and February when it's truly cold, miserable and cloudy I'll have my own spectacular display. And besides, the flowers can shine without the competition of the Christmas ornaments.
