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.
