Outdoor flowering amaryllis

last October 2018, I bought an outdoor flowering amaryllis.  The bulb was the size of a huge sugar beet with a pointed top.  I was very intrigued 

i heard the words of planting advice well drained soil,ie plenty of gravel, what I didn’t hear was plant in February, so I planted the bulb in a large pot in October!   I placed the pot under a glass table close to a south facing sheltered wall.  Most of the winter growth was slow, now I realise it was struggling.

However, now in early May two good dark purple shots are emerging and so it’s a case of never give up!
