Buy Hippeastrum (Diamond Group) 'Picotee' amaryllis Picotee bulb: Finely pencilled pink edging

  • Position: bright but not in full sun
  • Soil: good quality potting compost
  • Flowering period: September to December
  • Hardiness: frost tender
  • Bulb Size: 26/28

    The white petals of this beautiful amaryllis have a fine, pink edge, which looks as though it has been drawn on with lip-liner. A gorgeous variety that will look very elegant inside during winter.

  • General care: Fill a pot with good quality potting compost, setting the bulb in the compost so that the top two thirds are exposed. Water the compost only when the surface is dry, watering too much just after potting can cause the bulb to rot. Keep the plant in a sunny spot, though not direct sun and rotate the plant so as to avoid the flower stalk leaning towards the light.

    Once flowering has finished cut off the flower stalk 5-10cm above the bulb - don't cut off the foliage. Water when the surface of the compost is dry and feed regularly with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Usually the best thing to do is keep watering it through the summer and in autumn stop watering and move to a dark, dim spot. This stimulates the drought season of the plant’s native South America. Allow it to dry out for a few months so that the foliage wilts and dies back. In November bring it back in to the light and start watering again. Old foliage should be removed though take care not to cut any new shoots off. In a few weeks a new flower shoot will appear and flower just in time for Christmas.
