Incredibly popular as winter gifts, Amaryllis, also known as Hippeastrum, are spectacular flowering bulbs that are a real treat to grow, giving you stunning, exotic flowers in the middle of winter!
So appropriately named, ‘Christmas Star’ flowers with huge, bright red trumpets that have a spectacular starburst pattern in the centre, perfect for the festive season. Amaryllis are so much fun to grow and it’s always exciting to see how many flowers they’ll produce. They will often produce more than one stem, with each one carrying up to six flowers. That’s an incredibly impressive display!
Our indoor bulb kit makes a wonderful gift, or you could just treat yourself. It’s always fun to grow one of your own and give another as a present and then compete for the tallest plant with the most flowers!
Presented in an attractive gift box, it contains everything you need including a pot, compost and a large bulb. All you need to do is plant it around 8 weeks before you’d like it to flower, with the top third of the bulb above the compost, always keeping it moist. Your Amaryllis will grow up to 60 cm (2 ft) tall.
