It's time to plant your paperwhites for pretty blooms in December!
They're simple to force, make a beautiful statement, are inexpensive,
you just have to plan ahead a bit, but you'll be glad you did!
These were mine a couple of years ago, planted in Ikea Stainless Bowls,
that got a quick and easy DIY spiff up here.
In the past I've always found bulbs at Home Depot, but this year my store only
had bulbs pre-planted in pots, I found the same at Walmart - both were about $7
for 6-7 bulbs. Since I like to choose my own container I bought loose bulbs from a
nursery (O'Tooles if you're local) for $1 each.
They have a tendency to get tall and need help to keep them upright, I love
the green ribbon my friend Claudia @ My Little Bungalow used to corral hers.
The options for containers are endless, I've shared lots of fun
paperwhite planting ideas in this previous post if you need some inspiration.
And, the super simple instructions for planting can be found here.
