This photo could practically be a consumer product test. The John Scheepers amaryllis bulb on the left was planted in early December. Two months later, this bulb is just beginning to send up a stalk. The White Flower Farm bulb on the right was started a couple of weeks later and now looks like it's a couple of weeks away from bloom. Just saying.
Not too happy at this pint that I purchased all my bulbs for indoor forcing from Scheepers. Most are chilling in the refrigerator for a few more weeks, so their test will be later this month.
So glad, in the meantime, that I have some more White Flower Farm gift certificates. Next winter will definitely be more floriferous.
