In hot countries, amaryllis are evergreen. My mum keeps hers in a conservatory, waters and feeds (tomato or comfrey fertiliser) all year round, and has flowers on one or the other all the time. Two of mine that flowered in spring sent up another flower spike in August, and one currently has a big seed pod, presumably pollinated by being outside.

You could rotovate the bark into the subsoil.(Hire a big rotavator if necessary). That will probably make it quite acid. Test with a pH meter before you plant anything. The bark will be deficient in nutrients so a good dressing with fertiliser will be needed. You could scrape or rake off any lumpy bark before you start to use as mulch around newly planted plants or shrubs.

Are your comments updating?

The forum starting playing uparound lunchtime yesterday. I could access other websites OK.  Then that went. It came back on for 5 minutes at 9pm then gone again. I phoned Virgin this morning and they said they had a major problem and hundreds of houses were out.  They expected the problem to be fixed by 4pm today but it seems ok at the moment.
