Hello everyone, December is flying by and I've been doing a lot of behind the scenes activities in preparation for the holiday season. This year I was bound and determined to start a new tradition of planting Paperwhites in hopes that they will bloom by Christmas Day. I got really inspired by this beautiful post from the Stone Gable blog.
If you'd like to try planting Paperwhites I have found a few tips through my searches that I thought I would share. To find Paperwhites, you can purchase them in little gift boxes like you see below from your local shops. My mom and dad brought these home for me one day. You can also purchase them at your local greenhouse right out of the bin as singles or in bulk. The kits will usually have a container and a dry potting soil mixture. If you buy them from the green house you will need some potting soil or small stones.Christmas Ideas board if you need more inspiration.
Edit: I'll be adding something fun to my Paperwhite planter once they're close to blooming. I need to make a trip out to the timber with Charlie for that one. Stay tuned.
Edit: This set of milk glass dishes is up for sale in my shop. I almost used these for my Paperwhites this year. The pretty white of the glass with the white blooms would look so delicate. You could probably use 5-6 bulbs for this collection. Idea: spray paint twigs white to hold the blooms upright once they get really tall.
Thanks for stopping by today....and as always, I so appreciate those of you who leave nice comments. :)
