Dear experts,
I am in a situation where I normally order and buy Easter lilies. I use at least a dozen; I always order 16. But this year is different because I am going to need them by May 2nd. A month after Easter, so I know that no potted white flowers are available already. A possible solution could be to buy and force my own white hyacinth bulbs or any others that force easily. Question is, is it too late to try and do it? Is it possible to force any white flowers by May 2nd? I have read that you can force bulbs earlier but not later than normal. Maybe things exist that bloom normally at the beginning of May. Please tell me what you think. Thank you!

Well, I have been to a local nursery and explained my situation. They don't think anyone forces any bulbs to bloom a month after Easter, of course. They said they could look for white cyclamens for me. Cyclamens would be great, but they are slightly more expensive of course.

I would give this group a call or email, I have always had good luck contacting them with questions
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
