Because of the Weather here in Southern California, it was 90 degrees yesterday,
my paperwhite bulbs are blooming really early
They are beautiful blossoms
It always feels like the holiday season with the amazing smell of paper whites.
start to appear and the flowers begin to emerge.
Then the glorious fragrance that engulfs the entire home
with natures beautiful perfume
different blooming stages by the front door
so when guests walk in the first thing they see and smell are
the glorious paperwhites.
paper white bulbs are so easy to grow
to force them inside...
all you just need is
a vase about 3 to 4 inches tall
3 to 4 bulbs for each vase
stones or pebbles(you can use sand too)
fill the vase halfway with the pebbles
tuck in the bulbs pointy side up
cover with more marbles or pebbles (small stones)
add water to the base of the bulb
keep in a shady spot until the roots start to appear then
move to a sunny spot when the bulb starts to sprout
It is so fun
and such a wonderful way to bring the outside indoors
The planted paperwhites make great gifts for the holidays
so I am planting a few extra for friends.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend
