If I plant paperwhite bulbs in a shallow bowl with pebbles, how long will it take for them to bloom. I would like to have them blooming for Christmas but I don't know when to start them. Thanks!

It takes about 4 to 6 weeks for bloom. However, the closer you get to spring, the faster they'll bloom, so if you start them in January, for example, they'll bloom in 2 to 3 weeks.
