Soak the amaryllis bulbs for a few hours to help reydrate roots and speed up the growth process.
Fill a pot with compost and sit the bulb on top. Don't use a pot that's too big: amaryllis like being pot bound.
Top up with compost and water in. Leave in a warm, dark place for a couple of weeks and don't water further.
When a shoot emerges, bring inside to a warm, light spot and water regularly. Expect flowers in six to eight weeks.
