Persuading the Paperwhite

Dreadful photos, sorry. The late great darling Oliver & bulbs. Recently read Persuading Bulbs to Bloom by Anne Raver in late October & finally checked out some bulb prices. Wow, have the prices gone up! The days of four pots (minimum) blooming are not making a return (this year), still a few pots through the winter are uplifting. There's a much wider choice of bulbs to "force" nowadays. Not just paperwhites, but all the minor & major bulbs. Try to get them soon though...many websites are sold out. There are still some in the stores.

ciao, bisou,
