Re: Amaryllis??

        I think amaryllis are great fun.  I keep them inside till the last
frost, then put them outside, either leaving them in their pot, or
transplanting into a planter.  When frost threatens in the fall, I put them
in the garage and let them rest -- cool temperature, dry, and dark.  Last
week I brought the first ones in; transplanted all the new pups, watered,
and put them in a sunny window.  In about six weeks the fun starts all over
again, as I bring in a few more every couple of weeks.
