Time to Force Bulbs Indoors

It’s that time of year again – time to force bulbs to bloom indoors. Huge, gorgeous amaryllis bulbs are always popular in the winter months when little else is in bloom. If you pot up bulbs now and place them in a warm place, many will be in bloom at Christmas or shortly thereafter. They make a wonderful gift as they need little care except for occasional watering.

Fragrant paperwhite narcissus bulbs are so easy to grow anyone can do it. Simply place the bulbs on stones in a watertight container, add water to the base of the bulbs and wait 3-4 weeks. Keep topping up the water until the roots form, but after that as long as the roots are in water, the water level is not really important.
