I dug some of these up at my aunts house last summer. She told me they were amarylises, so I potted them up as such. They have yet to bloom. My friend planted the one I gave her and it bloomed. Do they have to be in the ground to bloom?? I have one about the size of a childs ball, not quite as big as a scoocer ball but certainly heading towards that size.

They should be planted pretty deep, about 10-12" or so, and they are a wee bit particular about movement. Your friend's was probably ready to go when she planted it.

I'm not such an expert on these guys, but I would suggest you plant it deep and wait for next late spring before anything stunning happens.

I have one coming through at the moment, but it's far from blooming. I don't know if they even bloom the first year.

I reckon somebody like TiG, or Poppysue could help you more.

I just wanted to give you my wee 2cents worth.

Hope it works
