And here I am postponing going out to the garden again with a second journal for today.

I guess I'm hoping that moss will scrape itself and those perennials will cut themselves back!

Anyway, I thought the following two videos might prove useful.

The first is about what to do with hippeastrums after flowering and the second is a look around my greenhouse in winter.

Happy growing!

Just what I needed! I've just watched your  utube video Rachel. What a great explaination of all the steps to getting an Amaryllis to flower again...thanks.

Thanks from me also. I have three of them - so now I know what to do with them. What feed do you use for them and how often do you feed them?

Thank you, Michele. Your support is much appreciated and good luck with reflowering your hippeastrum.

Hi Eilish. I use multi purpose at half strength about every two weeks. Good luck.
