Amaryllis bulb, has anyone kept them from year to year ?.Have got my first one and it has had 3 flower spikes, the latest one having 6 flowers on it, so I cant complain. However |I would like to keep it and not sure of the best method, any advice from experience appreciated.



I think you have to carry on watering it till the leaves die off then leave it in a cool dry place until next year, we put ours in the greenhouse when it gets warmer under the potting bench and it comes out the next year.
If anyone knows different please put me right :o)) Jackie x
