How do you get your amaryllis to flower like this?

BRIAN KIDD: Your letters and this week’s gardening tasks

Q: I bought amaryllis bulbs and they have wonderful leaves but no flowers. How can I get them to come into flower? BS, Southsea.

A: Feed them with full-strength liquid fertiliser for tomatoes once a month from now, but stop in August. At the end of August stop watering and put the pots on their sides indoors in hot sun so the foliage will die off. In October cut off all the foliage and repot in DRY John Innes No3 compost. DO NOT WATER. Put the pots in a light place and do not water until large fat buds rise from the top of the bulb. This can be done any time between February and April next year.
