#Plant Care

The Amaryllis is regularly received as a Christmas gift. These beautiful, showy blooming plants do eventually fade, at which point the bulb can be discarded in the compost. However, there can be a repeat performance! When the bulb is properly stored, it can be repotted after dormancy, causing the plant to grow and rebloom. How wonderful!

Learning to store your amaryllis bulbs will allow you to be able to continually enjoy the plant year after year. If you have several different varieties, it is a good idea to keep them separate and label them correctly so that you can set up your garden the way you wish in the spring.
