Paper Whites Progress

January 29, 2012 by admin

Look how well my paper whites are doing!!  They’re certainly brightening our window sill and harkening spring in the middle of the sleet and snow.  It’s so easy – you just plant ‘em and water ‘em and watch them grow!  They bring a smile to my face each day and they smell wonderful.  They look great en mass like this, but I also like to cart individual pots and saucers around to different areas of the house like a writing desk, kitchen counter or powder room.  You should try growing your own paper whites for sure!

    Lovely. I heard Margaret Roach say on The Way to Garden podcast, that if you put vodka in the water, then they don’t grow so tall and get so flopsy. I’m going to try that next time because I hate to tie them up.

    Love this! That didn’t take long at all! I did this a few years ago and definitely need to do it again :)
