Re-pot your Christ­mas amaryl­lis

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

1 Re-pot your amaryl­lis bulb into fresh pot­ting com­post. Make sure the pot is large enough to con­tain the roots with­out dam­ag­ing them.

2 Check the bulb is healthy, with no signs of rot or dis­ease. In­sert the bulb onto the com­post.

3 Top up with more com­post and make sure the top of the bulb is pok­ing out above the sur­face. Wa­ter it well.

4 keep the com­post moist and po­si­tion in a sunny spot. Buds shoot within seven weeks of re-pot­ting, in time for christ­mas!
