Growing an Amaryllis Flower
I have wanted to grow an amaryllis for many years. My mother-in-law gave me a bulb/bulbs many years ago, but when it came to putting the pot outside, turned upside down, in the summer, that was when mine died. This year I got several catalogs in the mail that I had never gotten before. One was from Plow and Hearth in Charlottesville, Va. On the back they had some amaryllis kits that were not expensive. I called and ordered one for me and one for my dear friend in North Carolina. The description of the kits was that it had three bulbs already planted. You just had to water and put in a sunny window. Okay, I can do that!
