It’s that time of the year where my Amaryllis falls over and practically starts snoring where it lands.
So after noticing that the leaves had finally yellowed off I trimmed off the last of them, cleaned up the dried off outer layers and wrapped them up, still in their pots, in newspaper to keep them safe.
Now with them wrapped I put them in a dark place in my outhouse where it stays cold but doesn’t freeze, even though it really feels like it has at times!
Now, if it follows form they will stay there till mid January, and I will start checking for any signs of life. When I see something or we get to the end of January, I will take them out, unwrap them and separate the double into two pots.
Finally I will give them a good drink and hope that they actually get a flower out next year without getting knocked over by the cat! >.>
