If you are wanting
blooming Narcissus' for Christmas
this is the week to plant them.
PaperWhites are easy to grow in your home this winter with sweet fragrant flowers you will enjoy for several weeks.
PaperWhites may be grow in a dish of pebbles. Select a shallow dish with no drain holes. Fill it half way with pebbles. Nestle the bulbs into the pebbles, pointed end up, and fill the rest of the dish with the remaining pebbles.
Then add water, keeping the water level just below the bottom of the bulbs.
When the sprouts begin to grow, put the dish in bright light and watch as the foliage and flowers emerge.
Remember to add water periodically, do not let the bulbs dry out. Cool temperatures keep the flowers fresher longer.
Don't forget about the
