paperwhite bulbs have arrived!

paperwhite bulbs have arrived!

here are some tips on how to pot, propagate and prolong the life of your paperwhites!

you can begin to force your paperwhite bulbs anytime between october and january, which will give you plenty of opportunities for lots of blooms.  be sure to store any extra bulps in a paper bag, in a cool, dry spot.  to pot them, any kind of glass container will do, as long as there is a good layer of pebbles or river rocks to create good drainage.  place the bulbs inside, roots face down.  add water to the level of the rocks inside, and maintain that level throughout the life cycle of your bulbs. you should see blooms in approximately 4-6 weeks!

stop in today to pick up your paperwhites.  we will be happy to pot them up for you, or take them home for a fun holiday project!
