Around The House: Paperwhites

It's that time of year to plant your paperwhite bulbs in time for Christmas blooms!  I love the way these darling white flowers smell when they are in full bloom.  So fresh, clean and inviting.  Each year I plant them in clear glass containers so I can see them in all their glory.  All you need are bulbs, containers and a small bag of pea gravel that you can pick up at your local hardware store.  I find the vessels with taller sides allows for them to stay more upright and not fall over as much when they grow taller.

I have them in the family room...

This is a more shallow bowl, but these are in the living room...



Do you plant paperwhites in time for Christmas?
