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.|
- Purchase a few bulbs – I think I bought a dozen for about $20 at Hewitt’s.
- Stick them in a pot of soil or even on a pile of gravel suspended over water in a jar.
- Water when you remember keeping the soil somewhere between not wet and not dry.
- Watch them grow.
- 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?|
