Comments about Product: This is one of the most beautiful amaryllis I have ever seen. I ordered the one with two bulbs in a rectangular green planter. The planter is fine, but the bulbs are spectacular! We are traveling in our RV for the winter, and each day I put the plants outside to get sun. I have had many, many comments on how pretty they are, and many people have asked me where I got them. One stalk bloomed first, and the others have now started blooming as the first one finished, so I have been able to enjoy them for almost a month already. I will definitely order these again.
Gifts sent without gift card message.
Comments about Product: Bulb arrived to recipients, started to grow.
Comments about Product: I love this plant! I bought them as Christmas gifts and they are definitely the gifts that keep on giving!
Comments about Product: I bought four of these amaryllis, three were gifts. Miniature is a misnomer. They all grew at least two feet tall. Mine had 18 blossoms total. The other three recipients had similar results. I understand now that the miniature reference was to the bulbs. I'll be back next year for more.
Great product, poor customer service
Comments about Product: Great product.
I like them
Comments about Product: good price. nice containers and i bought two . yes they won't be ready for Christmas but Valentine's Day will be fine.
A gift they all loved.
Comments about Product: I gave these (with stakes) to my parents, aunt & uncle and my sister. I also bought one for myself. The pre-planted bulbs grew quickly & bloomed beautifully. All recipients told me several times that they really enjoyed this gift. My parents' bloomed almost simultaneously and it was quite a show. Mine bloomed at different times, but they were still lovely.

Needs better packing
Comments about Product: The bulbs survived, and the shoots are growing fast. The box iwas marked which side to keep up. Someone along the line did not read that. About a third of the soil was out of the pot and all loose in the box. The bulbs were almost bare. It would be better if there was some way to keep it all contained. Hopefully the three that I sent as gifts arrived all in one piece.
Three small beauties
Comments about Product: Better than mistletoe
By Well pleased
Comments about Product: The container and bulbs make an outstanding gift. This year's packages just arrived but was late delivering one last year and the hearty bulbs sent out blooms right through the box and gift bag, a little crooked due to growing at an angle but attests to the hardiness--blooming without light or water!
Comments about Product: I bought these last year and loved them
So easy. Shorter blooms make for a great indoor color. Bought one for my mom also.
Comments about Product: Pretty on window sill, smaller size was was not top heavy
By Lost in Pinecone USA
WOW just WOW !!!
Comments about Product: With 75 other reviews in today mine no doubt will be lost. But ours were quite beautiful and bloomed quickly. Like a few others our white came up slightly higher than the reds and slightly behind them. But just wonderful blooms and the white is a full sized flower the reds were a bit smaller sized. With things of nature one does not expect exact performance as the picture shows but delighted us and is delighting us. We had to remove the mossy like material the pot came with and go to just soil because it attracted our 3 cats who refused to leave it alone. Even attempted to take a dome top we weighted down over it off. Once that was removed the cats could care less about the plants. Recommend but be realistic people flowers are nature and they have their own schedule no matter how much effort man kind puts into them or tries to control the out come. Go with the flow. Enjoy!!!
Beautiful, but not very miniature.
Comments about Product: These miniature amaryllis are not very small at all & grew beyond the capability of the container they came in to keep them upright, etc. further the two red ones though very beautiful, bloomed & spent their flowers before the white one even began to grow its stalks, Very beautiful though. Needs little care. Retains water, so I suggest giving the flowers & leaves a shower as opposed to watering the soil direct. Needs a sunny location.
I Love These Planters
Comments about Product: I ordered this in November as part of a Christmas shopping shipment. I wanted some garden color for my home besides the usual poinsettia. These flowers grew and bloomed very quickly, yet they also sent up flower stalks even after Christmas. I intend on ordering several more planters for the other months. They look beautiful in my family room window. The only con I would have is that they bloom so fast! I was hoping for most of the bloom right at Christmas but it turned out well as I did have some blooms for Christmas due to the reblooming. Six, very large flowers from the planter.
Comments about Product: Gorgeous and easy to grow!
Comments about Product: Bulb was potted by me in a beautiful red pot that came with it. Placed in a sunny window , watered once/week and it really took off. I did not know that there were miniatures and much prefer them as you do not need to stake them and it seemed that the flowers lasted longer than the standard size versions.
Mini African Amaryllis
Comments about Product: Gave two as gifts and one for myself. All three are doing well. Would like to know if I should cut off dead flowers, dead foliage, and can I plant the bulbs outside and when. I live in the Tampa Bay, FL area.
This plant is beautiful
Comments about Product: I gave this plant as a gift and within 2 weeks it had large beautiful blooms. This was for someone who has everything, she was surprised and loved it.
Disappointed in the Service & Delivery
Comments about Product: These were given as a gift, no complaints.
Disappointed in the Servive & Delivery
Comments about Product: These were purchased as gifts, no complaints.
I will by this product again.
Comments about Product: I have sent these to some of my older family members. They have enjoyed watching them grow. I appreciate the fact that they are already planted- so no work for them.
By Office manager.
Comments about Product: Happy with the gifts for our family.
Wish they would have arrived together!
Comments about Product: As of this writing - I am not sure if all were received so I am unable to say if they have bloomed or not.
By Sorry I placed this gift giving order.
No common sense when filling orders
Comments about Product: I ordered 4 as gifts (direct ship to 4 people) along with the 3 "Plant support stakes" offered with the item at an additional $9.95. They shipped everyone the plant stakes separately, but first - with no mention on the paperwork that a plant was following etc (so everyone wondered why did I get these ???) and then about 5 days later the plant arrived.
Where is the thought process here? If they were going to ship items separately, then ship the plant to arrive FIRST!!!
Only two bulbs grew
Comments about Product: We are instructed to return products that are unsatisfactory but how do I return these blooming plants when two are nice and the third is dead? There should be an alternative (partial credit perhaps) to returning plants. It's not as if they would be shipped out to someone else.
Flowers are great gift
Comments about Product: Since I ordered this for a gift for relatives about 900 miles away, I have not seen it. However, we have made this an annual gift for at least 5 years, each time with a different floral product. They always comment on how wonderful the plants are, how amazing the blooms/abundance/health, and they are most appreciative of this type of gift. A bit of color in the Maine winter gives hope for the spring! I anticipate the same rave reviews this year.
Thank you for continuing to offer these products with reasonable prices.
Makes a Great Gift
Comments about Product: So easy to grow. Just water and enjoy!
Comments about Product: My 80-year-old stepmother was overjoyed to get this gift. She loved the idea of watching the flowers grow in the dead of winter.
By Kat friend
A sure thing
Comments about Product: I bought these flowers last year for myself and a neighbor. The 2 end flowers were as pictured but the center one one was full size! What a surprise.
Only 2 blooms out of 3
Comments about Product: Bought 10 last Christmas for gifts. Only 2 bulbs in each container grew. Will order again this year and hope for all three.
Comments about Product: the copper planter is very pretty. All three bulbs produced green leaves, though one was definitely not a mini. Not one bulb produced flowers!
pretty but not all miniatures
Comments about Product: Bought and sent four as gifts. All recipients enjoyed their amaryllis(es?), however one said her red flowers were more "orangey" than one would expect around Christmas. Another (in an assisted living home) was thrilled to receive "miniature" amaryllis(es) because her space is limited. She loved the flowers - they were beautiful - but like another reviewer noted - the center, white flower got huge - very tall - much higher than could be managed with the small stakes - and the red ones were also higher than pictured in the catalog. That's my only gripe. Size wasn't accurate and it mattered for one of my gift recipients. Recommended with reservations.
By Lorraine the flower lady
Comments about Product: Disappointed in that only 2 bulbs bloomed. Price was a little high for what you got. Probably will not order these again.
Just as Advertised
Comments about Product: I was ordering a 3-mo. bulb garden for my mother and decided on these for myself to fill out the order. Both products have been great. All three of my bulbs produced four flowers each with a long bloom time. If you need to fill a small space with some bright color, this arrangement can't be beat.
By Bonnie O.
Something beautiful on a winters day
Comments about Product: Everyone I sent them to loved them. Beautiful reusable container. I'll send them again this year including one for ME!!
don't assume it's perfect
Comments about Product: the people who assume that the bulbs should all grow or that the colors should be as pictures. plants will do what they do, mutate or be a dud. can't blame a company because more people had good reviews, and the unlucky people think because they had a dud that p&h just have bad quality.

3 1/2 stars for bugs
Comments about Product: Potting materials brought flying gnats into the homes where I gave these as gifts.
This was a beautiful gift
Comments about Product: This was a gift for my son in Seattle. He's been sending my photos to show how beautiful the amaryllis is, which sits in a window.
Comments about Product: I gave this to all of my relatives and they all loved it!!! It had a very long bloom time, grew rapidly and was spectacular!!!
Purchased as gift - rec'd rave reviews
Comments about Product: Colors were beautiful
Comments about Product: This was a Christmas present for my grandmother and she loved it! Thought it was the best kind of present.
Comments about Product: Loved the colors and size of the blooms, well worth the price! Made a great gift.
Not as flowery as advertised
Comments about Product: These bulbs were given as a Christmas gift, but took longer to bloom than advertised and were uneven in their growth which detracted from their attractiveness.
A Great Gift
Comments about Product: These bulbs came up quickly and are still blooming in March. This was a great gift at a great price. I sent it to three friends and they all loved it.
By Plow and Hearth New York shopper
only two bulbs bloomed
Comments about Product: Since only two of the bulbs bloomed, I'm not sure I would purchase this product again. However, since my aunt still enjoyed the gift, I might sent her another amaryllis but order it from a different company.
By Sue the gardener.
Two out of three.....
Comments about Product: This was a gift to a beloved aunt and I was disappointed the not all the bulbs bloomed. Perhaps a refund is due for that dud.
Grandma loved it
Comments about Product: A different gift for a gardener who loves plants.
Flowers were beautiful
Comments about Product: I sent it as a gift, so not all of the above applies, I know it was very appreciated.
Not all mini
Comments about Product: The two red amaryllis were exactly as expected. The center white bulb grew to over 30" tall with a one huge flower. While it was quite beautiful, it was completely out of proportion to the others and much too heavy for the pot, which I needed to support to keep it from tipping over. Not at all the attractive small display I was hoping for.
a big disapoinment
Comments about Product: for years I have sent amaryllis to friends as Christmas gifts. I usually keep some for myself. Of the 6 bulbs I kept for myself, I got 1 bloom. I am disapointed.Ordering was easy. the price was right. [...] The bulbs were duds. I wasted money.
I would buy this product again!
Comments about Product: I bought these plants for Christmas gifts for some family and friends. They bloomed when expected and were lovely!
By David in Clintonville
Not quite as advertised
Comments about Product: I ordered three of these planters, two as gifts and one for myself. Haven't heard about the bloom colors from my giftees, but mine had three bulbs of the red and white striped variety, rather than 2 solid red and one solid white as pictured and described. Pretty, but not what I'd ordered. But all three bulbs bloomed well over several weeks (a total of 21 blooms), and the copper planter is attractive and worth keeping. Without any provision for proper drainage, though, it's difficult to judge how much to water. Hence,the bulbs took longer to start growth, because I didn't given them enough water initially out of concern for possible bulb rot, and only one of the bulbs survived beyond the blooming period, since the planting medium was too wet during bloom, resulting in bulb rot.
Comments about Product: Amaryllis were gifts for my sisters and they all (3) loved them.
HUGE BLOOMS IN BRILLIANT COLORS
Comments about Product: I have given these plants as gifts for the last 2 years. The beautiful blooms brighten the clowdy, gloomy days of late fall and early winter. Observing the quick blooming gives those who do not get out often something to look forward to when they awake.
not up to par, sorry
Comments about Product: I placed the containers in a full sun window, watered and cared for them according to instructions and only 2 of the flowers bloomed in each container. The white tulips in either container never bloomed. On previous orders, that all grew fast and had long lasting blooms. This time I really was disappointed
Comments about Product: very pretty, mother in nursing home throughly enjoyed watching them grow and bloom!
By Laura's mom
Comments about Product: One of the red bulbs produced leaves but no flower. However, the white flower was fabulous.
Mini African Amaryllis - 84058
Comments about Product: I bought the Amaryllis as gifts for Christmas. I found out that in some of the containers (3 bulbs in a each container)only one or two of the bulbs grew and bloomed. I really felt bad since they were gifts for my colleagues.
By Mom mom
what grew was beautiful
Comments about Product: Only 2 of the 3 bulbs grew - in each of two pots.
One good, one bad!
Comments about Product: I bought 2. One grew beautifully and made a great gift for my elderly aunt and uncle. The one I gave my Mom didn't do as well. One mini one bloomed with beautiful flowers and the one in the middle turned out to be a giant. The other mimi did not get any flowers at all.
By Mary from the lake.
Fun to see this grow!
Comments about Product: It seems to be a yearly event. I like the decorative containers and they look nice in my home.
Not mini amaryllises at all
Comments about Product: While all 3 plants grew and bloomed, these amaryllis plants were all at least 24" tall - not minis. I am exceedingly disappointed in this product and would not ever recommend it, or buy it again.
Beautiful - especially the white blossom
Comments about Product: [...] Final blooms 2 months after delivery, Beautiful.
Recipient found it lovely!
Comments about Product: Sent to my sister as a gift. She loves to garden--and she described the gift in glowing terms!

Better than I had hoped for
Comments about Product: Bloomed through the holidays
By The Gardener
Not typical of Plow and Hearth quality
Comments about Product: Since I had sent three of these as gifts - no one wanted to be rude and tell me that none of them ever matured. The one that I personally saw two weeks after delivery had bulbs that were obviously rotten. I did NOT contact P&H and complain so I can't imply that they didn't fix the issue as I was too busy with the death in the family and simply couldn't deal with anymore issues!
Comments about Product: all 4 gifts were very much enjoyed--would order again---[...]
Comments about Product: My grandmother enjoyed the Amarillys so much, especially during the cold winter months...she bragged about it all the time.
Comments about Product: This makes a wonderful gift for the person who has everything. Easy to care for and beautiful to watch bloom.
Wonderful Gift to send or receive!
Comments about Product: I sent several Amaryllis bulbs back east to give the folks some hope that spring will indeed come. In the meantime, while they waited from one storm into another, they have been delighted by seeing the daily growth of these gorgeous plants!I have taken some photos which I will turn into paintings or cards or both! The personal help with ordering was very courteous and helpful. I will be coming back to Plow & Hearth as a repeat customer! I just sent the jonquils bulbs to my friend back east for her birthday in February. She had five feet of snow on her roof at one point this winter. Now she's looking forward to watching these little beauties grow and bloom!
My sister loved it!
Comments about Product: This beautiful gift to my sister was much appreciated in the dead of a NY winter.
By Granma Fran
A little bit dissapointing
Comments about Product: I bought this as a gift for ourselves, I liked the look of the copper planter w/ the red & white blossoms. I've had amaryllis before, but never minis. These are almost as successful. I started them cool, w/ bright light,& little water. The middle is white, now a full beautiful blossom, 18 in. tall, with a 2nd bud at its base. On one side is a 20 in. red bud tightly closed, long & skinny flower. And the third one is still dormant, the growth is as shipped: about .25 inches tall, that's it! I rotated them religiously,and now I continue to care for it as when starting it up. The white blossom is truly beautiful, sorta makes up for its slow-poke pot siblings!
I will buy this product again next year
Comments about Product: Great variety in the 3 bulbs
Not as expected--one bulb did not bloom!
Comments about Product: Request another plant if it does not bloom as I did. I have not had a response to my request as to whether another will be sent.
Would buy again.
Comments about Product: Used as part of holiday decorations. Blooms are lovely and not as tall so they stand on their own until all have bloomed.
Not as shown or described
Comments about Product: I ordered this because it was "mini" and had bright red. So far, I have one white opening bud on a 26" shaft and another opening white bud on a 17 inch shaft. There are 3 smaller buds on about 3-6" shafts that haven't started opening yet.
What happened to "mini and red"? Last year, I ordered your Christmas tree with birds on it. When it came it had 4 birds and was shedding the needles. Will probably never order from Plow and Hearth again for plants/Christmas!!!
I=Second year ordering - perfect
Comments about Product: This is the second year I've ordered these plants. they are very reasonable priced, come in an attractive container, bloom long and beautifully and they make fantastic gifts. A real winner
Comments about Product: I bought these as a gift and because they were already several inches high, I had to re-order. I did keep the original shipment for myself.
By Chilly in Midwest
Comments about Product: Bought two...one for a gift and one for me. Thought it was great so I ordered another as a gift. Recipients are enjoying it immensely.
It will be a kitchen Christmas centerpiece.
don't waste your money
Comments about Product: This plant had one dead bulb ,and 2 very inferior bulbs .One has bloomed and the other is just emerging.I love your store but this should have the money refunded,I might bring it back to the store ,very dissapointing
Gift was big hit
Comments about Product: I gave this as a gift and the only complaint was that it's blooming too quickly and will be finished before Christmas. They love the size and color.
Comments about Product: I bought this to use as a Christmas display. It arrived in very good condition and I only had to give it water and light to get it going. It was so eager to bloom that it is starting to fade already. I should have waited a week or so longer to order it. I had assumed that it would take five weeks to be in bloom as other amaryllis I have grown did. Maybe it bloomed faster because they are miniatures? . All of the bulbs bloomed at the same time just as I hoped they would. The white is particularly pretty as it is a double, and the pot they are in is quite attractive. Both of the reds (a little on the orange side) have two stalks. The white has one, but did have a second stalk showing that did not come out. I like that it is not too tall. The plants themselves are about 18", overall just under 24"
Comments about Product: Love that it came in a complete kit with the stakes, little pricey, but can't wait for it to bloom. Will take longer than the 2 1/2 weeks as indicated in the description.
By Mama D
Perfect Christmas gift
Comments about Product: It was a perfect gift for an elderly relative
By cove woman
Comments about Product: The plants are healthy and ready to bloom in only a few weeks. Very impressive! I love amaryllis and these miniatures will be a first in my collection of plants. In fact, I ordered some for a friend who also loves amaryllis - it is a Christmas surprise. (Mine were ordered just before Thanksgiving.)
They are beautiful!
Comments about Product: They are what I was expecting and am really satisfied!
By Peggy the gardener
Not As Pictured
Comments about Product: Followed directions to start as a gift, even for a mini blooms looked puny, 3 bulbs didn't bloom at same time, couldn't give as a gift I would have been embarassed

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
