Amarylis in a pot.   I planted all my amarylis I harvested from my garden in one large indoor pot this year.   They have been beautiful and I have had continuous bloom for the last 6 weeks.   I have two different kinds.   My pot is not outdoor friendly as there is no drainage so I am going to repot them before I put them out side and fertilize them for the summer.    I brought them in side to my cold room in October and replanted them in January. If you still have bulbs you haven't planted up that you got for christmas you could put them in outdoor planters once it warms up.   some of our garden centres here near Toronto are offering the bulbs for summer planters too.

Just wanted to drop a hi and share a few of my "containers" loosely used term as I love to plant in things that are unique. Please share thoughts as this has become a new hobby for me and I would love to hear everyone's thoughts.
