Balcony all your Amaryllis are beautiful, this is the first time I have had them apart from one many years ago that someone gave me and I managed to kill off before it had flowered. I bought my daughters one each too and one flowered the other is still to come out. They were bulbs bought at a country fair in October so I think if they never flower again I shall have had my money's worth from them. Been pleased with them all so far.

Thank you, Oliveoil! I've been growing them non-stop for about 30 years! A sister of mine gave me one in a box with pot & compost for Christmas 1982 & I've never been without them in all this time!

I've found a couple of places that might interest you on growing Amaryllis & getting them to flower another year, (or every year for the next 30+ like me!):
