My first post

While waiting of the clock to strike at midnight, here goes my rants for the night.

We need to start something somewhere. This blog is about gardening in general and specifically about amaryllis. It seems that I can not find good info in planting amaryllis in Malaysia.

Here is a photo of my favourite amaryllis, hippeastrum 'Tosca', nice bright purple red colour, thin petals, red stamens, big flowers, tall scape ...
