paperwhites ~ it's time to plant & deal alert


Hey everyone, surprise a weekend post! 
I'm popping in quickly to let you know it's time to plant your paperwhites, and Lowes
 has just reduced them to 50% off. My bag of eight bulbs regularly $6.98 was $3.50,
 a steal for beautiful natural Christmas decor. They're in the section with the tulip bulbs.


Last year I planted mine in inexpensive Ikea stainless steel bowls that I spiffed up with
 gold paint and a gold base here


If you need pretty inspiration for planting ideas you can find it in a post I did 
last year here.

Btw, I share these kinds of tips on Instagram whenever I run across them,
if you'd like go here to follow along.

Enjoy the weekend, friends!

Thanks for reminding us it is time-I was too late planting last year and missed them so much.
Heading that way now, thanks again.

I just planted by first batch last week: see my Instagram! My one word of caution would be that bulbs on discount..or at big box stores…tend to either not grow well, or not grow at all. I've now come to only buy from the best sources: you pay a bit more but you're just about guaranteed big, beautiful flowers! And, see my helpful hint here to keep them from falling over as they get tall: http://www.libbywilkiedesigns.com/2013/12/how-to-grow-paperwhite-narcissus-bulbs.html
Yes! Give them a drink of alcohol… it really does work!
