Planted during October into an attractive container, they should produce their large trumpet flowers during the coming festive season.

Like many bulbs, including lilies, all parts of amaryllis are poisonous to cats and dogs, so make sure to grow them in areas they can’t reach.



Let’s find out how to force amaryllis bulbs for a wonderful Christmas display.

You Will Need
•Amaryllis bulb
•Multi-purpose, peat-free compost
•20cm diameter pot
•Pot, for soaking

Total time:
30 minutes

Step 1
Soak the amaryllis bulbs for a few hours to help rehydrate the roots and speed up the growth process.

Step 2
Fill a pot with compost and sit the bulb on top. Don’t use a pot that’s too big: amaryllis do best when pot bound.

Step 3
Top up with compost and water in. Leave in a warm, dark place for a couple of weeks and don’t water further.

Step 4
When a shoot emerges, bring inside to a warm, light spot and water regularly. Expect flowers in six to eight weeks.
