Reblooming Amaryllis
Getting amaryllis to bloom the first year after purchasing the bulbs is very easy, but it's not so difficult to get them to bloom again year after year if you know what to do. For simple directions, go to Amaryllis Re-Bloom, a page of the site. Provided by the International Flower Bulb Centre, representing the Netherlands bulb growers, offers a wealth of information about growing and enjoying flower bulbs.
