About your Amaryllis
A family ran business, our trusted bulb grower have specialised in growing and packaging bulbs for many decades. With over 40 members of staff caring for these bulbs each day, you can feel confident that you will receive a quality plant. The nursery will store your Amaryllis plant in dark, cold conditions. This will keep it dormant, meaning that it flowers right before Christmas. A week before your Amaryllis is sent out, they will be carefully packaged, but are still kept in these special conditions.
PackagingYour Amaryllis will arrive in a decorative gold pot in a plastic material. They will be delivered in a cardboard box (and enclosed in a sleeve) that will keep them safe and secure on their way to your home.
Caring for your Amaryllis
Before being delivered, the nursery will store your Amaryllis plant in dark, cold conditions. When they arrive at your home, the increased warmth will wake them from their dormancy.
It will typically take between 6 - 8 weeks until they flower, with the flowering time ranging from two to four weeks. With every home unique, every Amaryllis will be too. In warmer rooms, they will grow more quickly, and in cooler rooms, they will be more compact. Too much heat and direct sunlight (for example, a windowsill above a radiator) can make your plant grow too rapidly and become leggy. We recommend keeping them in a living room not too near a window.
When it comes to watering, once a week is best. If you water your Amaryllis too much, again, it may end up looking too leggy.
