Plant amaryllis bulbs in your landscape between September and January in a lightly shaded spot with well-drained soil. Dig in a 3-4" layer of compost and a slow-release organic fertilizer before planting. Plant bulbs 12-15" apart with the necks of the bulbs protruding above the ground. Spread a 2" layer of mulch to keep down weeds and conserve water. Keep the soil moist but not soggy as the plants are getting established.

Staghorn ferns do best in a lightly shaded spot, such as in the dappled light under high shade trees or in bright indirect light on a covered porch.
