Self Control? Nope!
What happened to the “only one new amaryllis every winter” rule?
“I was too lazy to get my amaryllises up from the cold cellar and now I only have the first beginnings of buds poking up from two bulbs” is what happened to it. And “my mother’s bulbs were all blooming, and I was jealous.”
So, three new ones. We’ll see if they are actually the colours they’re supposed to be (I’ve had lots and lots of bad experiences in the past, but that doesn’t stop me from trying again… and again… and again…)
And I nearly broke the taller stalk of the plant on the left – I had it in my bike basket, and a backpack on my back… I knew it was a bad combination, but was hoping for the best. I hope it will manage to bloom nonetheless.
