We Just Dug Up Our Amaryllis And Have 30 – 40 Gallons Of Bulbs. Should We Wash Them, Cut The Long Roots Or What?
Some are very large and I know we’ll need to cut them before replanting them. Any special instructions for that? We live in upstate South Carolina and these bulbs have been in the ground probably 8 or 10 years. The flowers are an absolutely gorgeous red, I want to be sure I do the right things to keep them healthy until we replant them. We usually keep them under the house during the winter.

You won't want to wash them, but you will want to make sure to cut off any extra roots, and dead debris.
