Twelve members of the Open
Gate Garden Club met January 17
in the home of Mrs. Charles Baird.
After a delicious dessert course
Mrs. Eugene McCarter, president,
welcomed members.
Mrs. McCarter introduced Mrs.
Sam Collins who gave a delightful
program on "Amaryllis Inside and
Qut."
"Amaryllis is known as the
monarch of the house plant world
and nothing can rival it for the size
of bloom and brilliance of color,"
she said.
Collins said it pays to buy good
bulbs. The size of the bulb is im-
portant. Buy those that are at least
2 1/2 inches in diameter. The bulbs
should have live roots and may
show new growth at the top. You
may choose red, white, pink, coral,

When you are ready to plant, use
clean pots and put several pieces of
broken pot pieces over the drainage
hole and cover with 1 to 2 inches
of soil. Select pots large enough to
allow at least a one-inch margin of
soil around the bulb. Add 1 tea-
spoon of bone meal to each pot.
Bulbs must be planted with one
half of their surface above soil lev-
el. Let water soak the soil and pot
for 30 minutes, then remove and
drain for 15 minutes. Place in a se-
mi-light room. Don't water again
until bulb starts growing. In about
two weeks the first shoot should
appear. Move the pot near a win-
dow so that it gets several hours of
direct sun. Feed every two weeks

bulb opens. The move to indirect
sun as the blooms will last longer
when kept out of full sun. After
the Amaryllis has bloomed, snip
off the flower stalk. At this time
you may keep it indoors or move it
outdoors. Continue regular water-
ing and feeding.
In September place it in a cool
dark spot and leave it for 6 to 8
weeks. Then begin the growing cy-
cle again starting with the warm
water soak.
The beautiful arrangement,
"Gems of January," was a gorgeous
brilliant red Amaryllis in full
bloom surrounded by four varied
colors of African violets in a large
brass container.
Door prizes were won by Joanne
Cox and Mrs. Paul McGinnis.
