Growing Paperwhites for Christmas is one of my favorite holiday traditions.
There is something about their tall stems and pristine pure white blossoms that dress up a room so perfectly.
Plus, with everything so bleak and barren outdoors, fresh new life and bright green stems just make me happy.
If you would like to add this lovely touch to your holiday decor, you need to purchase your bulbs now.
I have had Paperwhite bulbs start blooming two weeks after planting them….but some years they have taken three weeks or more to bloom. Bloom time is not an exact science. But, hopefully this will help you to plan to plant yours soon.
Last year I shared a tutorial detailing how to plant and grow Paperwhites here.
The post appeared mid December…a bit late.
So, I’m sharing it again so you’ll be able to get your bulbs purchased and planted in plenty of time.
