Product Information

Whether you are looking for a splash of colour or a gorgeous houseplant, then this easy-to-grow amaryllis (or Hippeastrum) is just the plant for you.

Even though they usually flower in early spring, amaryllis are best known as a house plant for Christmastime, so plant them from mid-October for festive blooms. They also make a wonderful Christmas gift, so your friends and relations can plant them and look forward to a stunning indoor display to brighten up the long days between winter and spring.

This bulb is supplied ready to sprout leaves and burst into flower all you need is a sturdy pot, some good-quality compost, water, and a little care to raise a fascinating flowering plant. Planted and kept in a warm room, they will bloom in around 6-8 weeks and provide interest throughout as the stems steadily emerge and blooms unfurl.

This large bulb will produce one or two strong stems, each bearing three or four dazzling red trumpet blooms. Why not plant several bulbs together in a larger pot for a stunningly unusual display or to have plenty for cutting as a trendy addition to a modern floral vase or arrangement.

Supplied as a large bulb, size 26/28, ready to plant up.

Top Tips

  • Use a heavy clay or terracotta pot if you can because plastic pots can tip over as the blooms get heavier.
  • Amaryllis do not like root disturbance, so only repot once every three or four seasons.
  • They grow best in small pots, so if only planting one bulb, do not be tempted to put in one more than 20cm (8in) or so across.
  • Flowers can be cut for the vase and will last up to 2 weeks.

 

Care Information

Planting Advice for Amaryllis:

  • A tender bulb, amaryllis need to be planted and grown indoors. They require well-draining, good-quality compost (our premium professional compost is ideal, mixed with a little sand or grit for optimum drainage).
  • Plant indoors,  pointed end up, in a 20cm (8in) clay pot. Pack the compost gently around the bulb, leaving around 1/3rd of the top of the bulb exposed.
  • Place the pot in a bright position, out of direct sunlight.
  • Water sparingly until you see about 5cm (2in) of new growth, then water regularly.
  • Flower buds will appear at the top of the stalk, followed by the huge blooms.
  • Most varieties will begin blooming 6 to 8 weeks after planting, although some can take as long as 10 weeks.
  • Use a support stake if the blooms look top-heavy.

Aftercare Advice for Amaryllis:

  • For long-lasting blooms, move the plant to a cool room once the buds open.
  • Feed every 10-14 days with a standard tomato fertiliser and rotate the pot a quarter turn every day to encourage the stem to grow straight.
  • Remove the flower stalk once blooming has finished and place your amaryllis outside to make the most of the summer sun. The leaves will start to die back in autumn, and you can allow the bulb to dry slightly before bringing it back indoors in October to rest for a few weeks before starting the cycle again.

Pruning Advice for Amaryllis:

  • As individual flowers start to fade, carefully snip them off. Once all flowers on a stalk have faded, cut the stem back to within a few inches of the bulb and move the plant outside once all risk of frost has passed.
