While perusing one of my favorite blogs - Dreamy Whites - I was inspired to try forcing Paperwhites. Maria said they are one of the easiest bulbs to grow so I thought I would give it a try - of course with a modern transitional flair.
First, I gathered the materials as instructed - Bulbs, Pebbles and 3 Dishes.
Next I placed the pebbles in the dishes.
To mimic the straight lines of the dish, I placed the bulbs in straight lines. Since there is no worry of overcrowding I placed 3 rows of 3. Hoping that the result will be splendid!
Ready for my 2nd dish...
Now - all three are complete. You can see I only placed 3 in the center dish, I thought if all goes well I may add some Christmas baubles later.
The water pitcher is ready...
Adding water just to the bottom of the bulbs.
Now, we wait - 4-6 weeks with fingers crossed - Paperwhites please!?!
The package says- Guaranteed to Grow.... I'll post pics later if all goes well.
