    How to Plant:

    1. Location: Choose a site with full sun to partial shade.
    2. Soil Preparation: Ensure the soil is well-draining, light, and fluffy. Prepare the soil to a depth of 20cm.
    3. Planting Method:
      • Position the bulbs with the 'fat' end and roots down, and the neck slightly above soil level.
      • Space bulbs 10cm apart for a full display or further apart for a less dense appearance.
      • If planting in pots, use a high-quality, free-draining potting mix. Place gravel at the base of the pot to enhance drainage.

    Care Instructions:

    • Watering: Water regularly, especially during the active growing period, and reduce watering as the plant enters dormancy.
    • Fertilising: Use pelletised chicken manure and a balanced bulb fertiliser, applied annually.
    • Temperature: Protect from frost; ideal temperatures range from 15-25°C.
    • Naturalisation: These bulbs prefer to stay in the ground for multiple years and do not require annual lifting.
    • Additional Tips: Ensure the bulb is well-fed and watered up until winter dormancy. Avoid overwatering, especially in pots, by ensuring good drainage.

    Additional Notes:

    • Hippeastrum 'Greenshades' is a unique mix of green cultivars, providing a striking addition to any garden. The variety makes a naturally smaller bulb, similar in size to a daffodil.
    • The stock offered are large, flowering-size bulbs with a viable root system, ensuring true-to-type flowers.

    Happy Gardening! Enjoy the distinctive beauty of your Hippeastrum 'Greenshades'!
