Trish's blog: Forcing bulbs

Posted on Mar 19, 2013 3:58 PM

Remember those bulbs I was talking about in our February podcast?

I had gotten these from Mary's Garden Patch. They grew great- I just kept forgetting to updateeveryone!

 

Here they are in all of their glory. You'll notice that I tied them with a ribbon. Paperwhites tend to flop over without some support.

They are lovely flowers. I will warn you- Paperwhites are listed as "malodorous" for a reason. I kept checking to see who needed a diaper change every time I walked by them! They ended up outside by the time they were in full bloom. While the flower is beautiful, and a welcome addition in the middle of the cold season, Paperwhites are outdoor only flowers for me!
