Paperwhites are an easy way to brighten up your home this winter.
They are a simple indoor gardening project and the also make excellent holiday gifts
Adding sprays of cheerful flowers and spicy floral fragrance to your home in winter is as easy as planting a few paperwhite bulbs in a pot. Growing bulbs indoors is called forcing because you get them to bloom out of their natural season by keeping them in cold temperatures until you’re ready to grow. But paperwhites are so easy that no “force” is involved; they don’t need (or want) to be pre-chilled. Instead, choose a container, lay the bulbs on top of pretty stones, or plant them in soil, add water, and you’ll have elegant blooms in 4-6 weeks. Here’s how to grow paperwhites indoors.
