Amaryllis, a proliferation of blooms

February, the Amaryllis are still blooming.


Round Two of Three, this season’s bulbs. (Round Three in another few weeks.) 

Wallace Gardens's insight:

The winter garden conservatory: Amaryllis are easy to grow, and the flowers are spectacular. The bulbs can be transplanted outdoors in Zone 7B, and will rebloom the following summer.

This is another one of my favorite client’s Amaryllis pots, which I refill for her each November. I delivered it to her on December 14th all budded up (left), and here it is again on December 28th. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Wallace Gardens's insight:

Amaryllis in full bloom, 40 days after potting.

Bathing the Amaryllis. One of my favorite fall... | Wallace Gardens | Amaryllis, Terrariums & Houseplants | Scoop.it

Bathing the Amaryllis. One of my favorite fall projects is planting up a variety of Christmas and Spring blooming Amaryllis, but before I put them into pots, I soak their roots for a scant 20 minutes in Cow Manure Tea, from Authentic Haven Brand.

After soaking the bulbs, I plant them up, and then water each pot with the Cow Manure Tea (that’s what’s brewing in the big red bucket). And that’s it! Now we wait for them to start popping out of their dormancy (with no additional water until after they begin growing, at which point I’ll continue to water with Cow Manure Tea as needed).

So keep your eyes open. More to come….

Happy Floral Design Day: February 28th (pictured: Orchid)

As if we needed an excuse to talk about flowers! More than sixty years ago, Carl Rittner founded the Rittners School of Floral Design in Boston, MA.  February 28th is Carl Rittner’s birthday, and is now the designated day we celebrate the art form of flower arranging.

The “Island Vessel Vivarium”

The “Island Vessel Vivarium” | Amaryllis, Terrariums & Houseplants | Scoop.it
The “Island Vessel Vivarium” is a terrarium inside an aquarium. Designed by artist Alberto J. Almarza, show-cased at the Geek Arts / Green Innovators Festival in April 2010. Glass blower: Pittsburgh Glass Center.
Wallace Gardens's insight:

I love seeing an idea that starts out on paper, and is then transformed into a living work of art. Even the blueprints for this aquarium-terrarium are lovely.

Still blooming....Once these Amaryllis have completed their bloom cycle, we will plant them into the landscape in April.
Wallace Gardens's insight:

Hello 'Rosalie' ~ one of the new Amaryllis varieties I tried this year. This one's a keeper! It's been blooming non-stop for over a week, and there are still more stalks with buds to come.

Forcing the Amaryllis

Forcing the Amaryllis | Amaryllis, Terrariums & Houseplants | Scoop.it

The Amaryllis are budding up well, just two weeks after potting. I love potting them up every year and watching them grow, because everything else outdoors is coming to the end of its season. It's so nice to focus on something growing this time of year. And when the flowers start to form - it's a celebration, just in time for the holidays!
