Santa’s Little Helpers
You’re busy making a list and checking it twice this holiday season, so when it comes to last minute décor or gifts for anyone on your list, a little help is always nice.
Santa’s Little Helpers are specially cultivated Amaryllis bulbs that bloom in 4 to 6 weeks from planting. Plant them in potting soil with a third of the bulb sitting above the surface and water the soil. You won’t have to wait very long for the bud to appear and grow into a flower stem. Each day, as the stem grows taller, the anticipation builds for the beauty of 4 to 5 sparkling trumpet-shaped flowers.
Amaryllis are wonderful living gifts for a teacher, classroom, coworker, pastor, caregiver, neighbor, party hostess, family and friends, or even for yourself. Best of all, Santa’s Little Helpers are available in six festive colours to give and grow for the holidays.
Just look for Santa’s hat at your favorite garden centre and you’ll know you’ve found a little help!
