plant amaryllis now!

amaryllis make excellent Christmas gifts every year. But if you want your own in bloom for your Christmas, start now. most amaryllis take 6 to 8 weeeks to bloom. if you have an annual Christmas party or family event, then do the math for when you need to pot one up.

i saw medium sized bulbs at Home Depot under $10 this weekend. but if you want the biggest bulbs on the market, then go to White Flower Farm (pictured). their bulbs are guaranteed to have at least two flower stalks and you're guaranteed to pay about $30 and up.
