A month ago I started my first attempt at forcing bulbs. I bought Paperwhite bulbs at the local hardware store and carefully placed them in a vase of pepples and water. I then placed it on a sunny windowsill. Now a month later, it’s getting so tall and pretty. It’s even starting to flower. So far there has just been a single flower but there are buds popping up everywhere.
I started the Hyacinths a week or so later and they are still in the dormant stage. However, check out their rooty goodness.
Now that I know that I can grow them successfully I think I may give out a few as gifts this Christmas.
