I have some Amaryllis in my garden and I'd like to give a few to someone else. It's mid-spring at the moment (October) in Melbourne, and they have their leaves on them. If they flower, it's in late summer (January - February).
Can they be transplanted at any time of year? I'm thinking it's probably best to wait until they go dormant.
How long can they survive out of the ground without water? They would travel for an hour. Do they need to be replanted immediately?
What do I need to do to maximise their chances of survival after being transplanted?
