Making an Amaryllis Bloom Again

How do I get an Amaryllis to rebloom? My mother-in-law, said it can be done.

Hardiness Zone: 7a

After flowering, leave the bulb in the pot so that the leaves can feed the bulb. When the leaves begin to wither, remove the bulb and store in a cool place. Replant just before Christmas in fresh potting compost.

I usually put it out in the garage once the flowers are past. This year I forgot to remove the bulb and I see it has started growing again:-( It will need extra feeding but it will be interesting to see if I get any 'heads' on it!
