There nothing easier and more rewarding than forcing a batch of Paper Whites in the darkest days of winter. Every year around this time as I start really craving a little life in the house these beauties save the day!
Normally I plant them in weathered vintage pots complete with soil but this year I opted for quick and easy.
|A quick trip to our local nursery provided me with a big sack of Paper White bulbs|
Ack, I know! This summer we were so slammed that I didn’t have a chance to make it to the beach for smooth rocks. I reluctantly bought bagged,polished rocks from the wholesaler ( China ) for a beach themed wedding. Yuck! This seemed the perfect opportunity to get rid of the last traces of this embarrassing moment!
|I took a nice large cylinder vase and filled it half full of stones.|
|Then squeezed in as many bulbs as would fit.|
|Poured water in up to the base of the bulbs|
|And Voila! Now I’ll tuck them in a warm bright spot and in a few week the house will be filled with fragrance!|
