|My last Amaryllis flower this year - quote by Ladybird Johnson - photo ©CindyRippe2013|
I'll start preparing them for growing outside soon. If I can stand the wilting old leaves, and remember to feed them often, they grow stronger and the bulbs with be restored. I can hope for another year of blooms next winter. I think it's worth the work and I'm lucky to have the space to store them in our cool basement until I bring them out "into the light" and they'll start their blooming party all over again.
If you'd like to make your Amaryllis bloom again there are great instructions HERE at the United States National Arboretum website. I've always left them in the pots in the shade during the summer but this year I'll try the instructions that they recommend. Good Luck!
