Paperwhite

I finally managed to get hold of some Paperwhite Narcissi after having been somewhat jealous of seeing them on other blogs over the past couple of years. I snapped them up and once I got home I discovered that actually some had already begun to sprout in their packet.
A week or so later I finally remembered to pick up some indoor pots for them and I’m now beginning to think that really I ought to have had four bulbs per pot rather than three… Oh well, next year maybe!

I can’t believe how quickly they’ve come up though, even those on a north windowsill are just as well developed as those on a south window… I’d thought we’d see a much longer blooming period as they’d be stunted compared to those in a sunnier spot.

Oh well, I guess it’s nice to have a glut; even if I had wanted them to bloom at Christmas! Just a mere 40+ days early…. Hrmph. I’ll have to find something else to have over winter instead.
