Amaryllis potted up in April now beginning to flower

The 40 or so Amaryllis that I potted up in April are now starting bloom, they are being moved from the kitchen & bedroom windowsills to the living room table as the buds start to open.

So as to keep better track of them I numbered them as I potted up the bulbs & also put the date on the pots. Here are a few now on our living room table:

Some of my Amaryllis from this time have now finished flowering & put back out on the balcony.

There is just one at this moment from an April planting that is flowering on the living room table.

There is just one more, at present, on the windowsill in the kitchen, that has a well advanced scape & will flower in another week’s time.

Finally there are lots more pots with bulbs at differing rates of growth both on our bedroom windowsill as well as the kitchen windowsill. None are as far advanced as in the previous photo though. So there may come a moment, during July, when, for the first time this year, I won’t have at the very least one plant in flower!

It’s not easy, I have to move many other plants first, but I got a couple of photos of the Amaryllis on the kitchen windowsill from inside!

The kitchen windowsill is 3m (10ft) long &, as you can see, there are two tiers of pots on it – there were 3 earlier! Here’s a photo looking in the opposite direction to the one above:

This, last photo, for now, shows the whole length of the windowsill & all the pots of Amaryllis on it. There are still a few pots to either side of the image that couldn’t be fitted in!

This really is the last photo for today! This time it’s the same view as above just that it’s taken from the outside! Nearly a quarter/one fourth of the window did not come out in this shot!

All of my Amaryllis bulbs that I planted back in April 2017 have either not flowered or have finished flowering. Those that have finished have been moved out onto the balcony where I’ve put them on some shelving I put up a few months ago. These can be seen in the accompanying photo. (Not that there’s much to see – only green leaves really!)
