Pretty Narcissus Paperwhites

This fabulous indoor bulb will fill your house with a wonderful scent during the holiday season. Paperwhites are quick to flower and only take 4-6 weeks in a frost free greenhouse or a cool room in your house. They make the perfect table centrepiece during the festive season. Make sure the pot has holes for drainage and use branches and string to support the flower stems from flopping over. It is best to use free draining compost with grit as this is the ideal mix. The top of the pot can be dressed with horticultural grit or sphagnum moss. Good varieties to try are Avalanche, Silver Chimes and Erlicheer. Place them around your home and allow their elegance to add to the holiday experience!
