I never look forward to the moment when the christmas tree comes down - yesterday in my case. And for me, the best way of filling the void is with spring bulbs grown in pots indoors.
Our house must have been very warm over the holidays, because most of the paperwhites that I grew are already well through their flowering time, so I shot down to a local gardening centre and bought loads of their bulbs that they had brought down to half price because of course it is too late to plant them ... hmmm.
So now I need your help please ... what are my chances of success with ....
I'm thinking that growing them in glass containers helps them on more quickly, and some alcohol in the water stops them getting too leggy .....
I'd be so pleased to hear any ideas that you may have tried,
merci mes amis!
