Have you ever forced Paper White bulbs?  It is one of the easiest, most satisfying, indoor gardening projects imaginable. 
Like each of us, they sometimes require a little support.
  1. Purchase a few bulbs – I think I bought a dozen for about $20 at Hewitt’s.  
  2. Stick them in a pot of soil or even on a pile of gravel suspended over water in a jar. 
  3. Water when you remember keeping the soil somewhere between not wet and not dry.
  4. Watch them grow.
  5. Enjoy their beauty and fragrance.

The flowers should last at least 2 weeks.

These took about 3 or 4 weeks from purchase to bloom.  Buy some today and you could be sniffing them for the New Year.
See the similarities to daffodils?
