I have amaryillas in my garden, they have been planted there for about 4 years. Last year they did not produce as much flowers as the year before. I do not dig up to store. I live in southern california and it does not get that cold here. Each winter they grow their green leaves continually. Some of the well established plants leaves have grown so long they fall over and eventualy yellow and die off. Is there anything special i should do to the soil now to get more blooms. They tend to bloom in the summer rather then the fall or winter. Would like to also know if maybe I'm watering to much? They are in a flower bed with rose bushes.

Roses require..

.. a lot of water where Amaryllis do not.

Don't know how you water your Roses.
I heard of people using pots for the Amaryllis and placing them in between your
Roses. You can hand water your Roses to try and keep to much overflow for the Amaryllis
