How do I get forced paper-whites to rebloom outside? I had some in ground for 2-3 yrs. with no bloom, separated them today and added bulb food.
What else & how long will it take. Thanks

I think you have done everything humanly possible to get your forced bulbs to bloom so now all there is to do is wait and watch. It does take 2-4 years for bulbs that were forced to revert back to their natural blooming cycle. Now that they are in the ground again - hopefully not planted too deeply - they should bloom for you. Best wishes with your paperwhites!
