SORRY - SOLD OUT NOW UNTIL LATER IN THE YEAR - SEASONAL PRODUCT - AVAILABLE AGAIN LATE SEPTEMBER 2021
Natural amaryllis bulbs from Peru, covered and protected with wax to keep the moisture inside and allow the bulb to sprout and bloom by itself.
The special varieties used, bulb size and post harvest temperature treatments, assure a natural and reliable sprouting and blooming. All the energy and water that the plant needs is stored in the bulb, so there is no need for planting or watering.
These amaryllis bulbs are produced in their native Peru in open fields and harvested in May-June, cleaned and cold stored. Each bulb is hand-waxed and painted on site and and transported by truck and sea freight to Europe, so it’s also a flight-free product!
Available in the following wax colours - Copper Glow; Green Sheen; Dark Chestnut Red; White/Gold Marble.
All produce red flowers, with the exception of the White/Gold Marble which has a white flower.
Nearly every person who has bought these, has come back for more!
