Amaryllis

Buy the plant (or budding bulb) in a 6-inch container. Assemble a box (available at mailing centers and craft stores) that’s 1 or 2 inches larger than the plant container, then add ribbon.

Line with tissue paper, then slip in plant. Water sparingly; temperatures of 60° or so prolong flower life.
