My amaryl­lis is fin­ished flow­er­ing. Will it flower again next year?

The People's Friend - - Gardening -

Once the flow­ers are fin­ished the leaves take over and con­tinue to grow, so keep your amaryl­lis wa­tered, fed monthly and give it warmth and light. They are quite happy in a cold green­house over sum­mer, but then be­gin to dry them off be­fore au­tumn to ripen up the bulb. Do not pot them up as they pre­fer a re­stricted root ball. Flower buds will form in­side the dried-off bulbs.
