Planting a couple more Amaryllis bulbs - Opal Star and Double Dream
I planted a couple of amaryllis today. I started them last year as smaller bulbs and planted them in bulb crates. A bulb crate is a similar to the milk crates - but larger. The growers ship the bulb from Holland in them and I at one point - I had over 100 of them. Received some advice that I can use them as planting bed. They already have drainage and are the perfect depth. I took a picture of an opal star bulbs showing the healthy long roots. I am transferring them to my raised beds. I planted Opal star and Double dream today.
