Seed Swaps

Is it just me or does anyone else love when Hippeastrum bulbs go on sale after the holidays?!

It’s that time of year again! I always go out and try getting poor Hippeastrum bulbs that were never sold during the holidays to give them a good home. And I love the often HUGE discounts I get! Am I the only one?!

I haven’t bought any in over 15 years but if I wanted to buy some I would certainly buy them after the Christmas fever has passed. I don’t think anyone – especially those that love these flowers – would want to miss out on a greatly discounted box of Amaryllis!

I grow all mine from my own stock of seed raised bulbs. I save them from year to year & now have well over a 100 bulbs at least! Most of them flower year after year & I have plants in flower for at least 6 months of the year!

I’ve posted many photos in the Hippeastrum group & written many posts on them as well.

By the way, welcome to Folia! I see you are new here!

It would be nice if any lasted beyond the Christmas period in this small town but any Amaryllis for sale are gone well before Christmas! Usually I buy from Botanus but this year I did buy from a local store and it was a bargain, two original flower stalks that bloomed for nearly a month, and now another bud.
