Plant these popular flower types to add beauty and color to the landscape. These flowers can be perennials or annuals and complete their entire life cycle in one growing season.
Petunias are old-fashioned favorites that come in every color and are pollinator magnets. Newer types don’t need to be deadheaded and will bloom all summer in full sun.
Yes, amaryllis are bulbs and will flower each year if you follow a few simple steps.
It is the temperature that triggers amaryllis bulbs into growth.
The temperature will need to be 15C-20C for growth to start so I suggest moving it in from the shed and into the house.
Start it off in a dark position and moisten the compost until the shoots emerge and then move into a bright and sunny position.
At this stage, you could feed the soil with a good quality houseplant or tomato food to promote flower buds.
It will take six to eight weeks from bringing the bulb inside to flowering.
Keep the compost damp without being too wet and it’s a good idea to turn the pot slightly each day to keep the stem growing straight and stake with a bamboo cane if necessary.
