I have a few amaryllis bulbs in pots which have died down over winter. However there’s some ehite mould growing on the potting mix. What should I do about this? Also, is it recommended to plant these outside n Wellington, or keep them in pots indoors?

Amaryllis prefer a subtropical, frost-free garden so if you have an area of your garden with a warm micro-climate you may have some success, plant in late spring or summer, plant with the neck of the bulb at soil level… otherwise stick to keeping them in pots. I would repot the bulbs into another pot to avoid the mould altogether. As they are big, three would need a tub 35cm across. (Amaryllis perform better if slightly pot bound.) Plant the bulb so that only the lower half or two-thirds of the bulb is covered with well-drained potting soil. In mid to late winter you can bring the plant into regrowth. Place the plant in a sunny spot on the window sill indoors and water well. Healthy growth should soon begin with either leaves or the a flower stalk. Then you can move the pot around as you wish indoors or a warm spot outdoors.
