Get another life out of your holiday flowers.

Amaryllis, Hippeastrum & Paperwhite Narcissus are very popular holiday gifts. Once the blooms have faded you can plant them outside in a partly shady corner of the garden for repeat bloom next year.

After planting, leave the leaves until they completely yellow, tucking them out of sight. They capture and store up energy for next year's growth. The bulb itself contains much of what the plant will need to continue to thrive for years. Adding bonemeal or compost at planting will increase your success. The bulbs will "naturalize" (or multiply) in the soil so you'll have  cut flowers for the following year.
