Floating Flower Market - Giant Amaryllis Bulbs
My friend is visiting amsterdam and i wondered if anyone knew anything about the giant amaryllis bulbs at the floating flower market?
Are they available now or is it later on in the year?
Anyone know the price of the 40cm + ones? And is there usually a good selection or will it just be a few un-named varieties in the standard red, white, orange, minerva stripe?
I can get most normal ones online but fancied some giant ones which are a bit harder to obtain.
I live in the EU so customs won't be a problem. I've seen them online at places like TyTy and was tempted but after seeing the complaints i don't dare.
Is it maintainable at that size or do they shrink dramatically after flowering, requiring the artificial conditions from growers to stay that size?
