I have an amarylis that flowered last summer, it has produced lots of leaves this summer but no flowers. I know some people only grow them for Christmas but I am now confused. What do I do next?

Thanks in advance.

Cut off the leaves and put the bulb somewhere cool - about 10C - for 12 weeks, leaving it completely dry for that period.

After that time bring into the warm and don't water until you see new growth, which you will fairly soon.
