Last Saturday was the end date for the amaryllis' dormant period, so I opened the door in the garage cabinet to find...
|A tangle of dead leaves. Perfect!|
|This guy seems to be a bit too pert, so he is staying locked up for a few more weeks.|
|Brought everyone home and got to work removing the dead leaves, removing any debris from the summer outside, and topping off the soil. Amaryllis bulbs like to be "shoulder deep", so don't bury them in the dirt.|
|Most look pretty promising. Plump, green bulbs.|
|This guy, however, was the only one that looked, well, less than lovely. He still has live roots, however, and a bit of green on the small, but firm, bulb, so I replanted him and crossed my fingers.|
