How to Plant:

  1. Location: Select a site with full sun to partial shade.
  2. Soil Preparation: Prepare the soil to a depth of 20cm, ensuring it is loose and well-aerated.
  3. Planting the Bulbs:
    • Position the bulbs with the roots downwards and the 'neck' slightly above ground level.
    • Space the bulbs 10cm apart for a dense display or further apart for a less crowded look.
  4. Container Planting:
    • Use a well-draining potting mix.
    • Place some gravel at the base of the pot to improve drainage.
    • Keep the bulbs fed and watered until they enter winter dormancy.

Care Instructions:

  • Fertilising: Use a pelletised chicken manure annually, supplemented with liquid fertiliser.
  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during active growth, but reduce watering as dormancy approaches.
  • Naturalisation: These bulbs prefer to stay in the ground for multiple years and do not need annual lifting.
  • Storage: Refrigeration is unnecessary; Hippeastrum bulbs thrive best when left to naturalise.

Additional Notes:

  • The Hippeastrum 'Oldboy's Cuppa Tea' produces strong stems and vibrant striped blooms, making it a top choice for cut flowers.
  • Large, flowering-size bulbs with a healthy root system are provided, ensuring true-to-type flowers.
