Even with this cold weather we still have an opportunity to garden. I received an Amaryllis bulb kit for Christmas and it is a fun and easy way to keep us gardening indoors until better weather comes our way. I also recently saw these at Target on a major clearance rack.
They supply you with soil, a bulb and a pretty pot to plant it in.
Step 1: Soak the soil in 3 cups of water for 15 minutes (it comes in a compacted disk)
Step 2: Place 3/4 of the soil in the pot
Step 3: Place the bulb in pointed side up and surround with soil (make sure the top portion of the bulb is above soil)
Step 4: Keep soil moist in a well lit area and watch it grow and bloom. Mine came out of the box a little farther along, but it should still work. I’ll keep you posted.
