Q.I just adore Paper whites in the winter. Is there anything special I should look for or request when ordering them? Iím hoping to have a Christmas display of Paperwhites and Cyclamen throughout my home.
A.Paperwhite narcissus are a beautiful simple fragrant addition to holiday
If bulbs are purchased, they must be "conditioned" for home forcing.
When buying bulbs, be sure they are for forced blooming indoors. Each bulb
will bloom once, then should be discarded. They are not meant to bloom again.
The process of force blooming may take several weeks to a month or
so....stagger plantings to extend blooming over the winter months.
Pre-potted/forced bulbs may also be purchased for a quick display, and this
is the time of year for cyclamens!
Enjoy your winter blooms!!
