Paperwhites full bloom
Grey skies and April showers are no match for the arrival of Spring! It’s time to gather all your houseplants for a grow conference- give them a good talking to and add fertilizer to their diet. And for a measure of competition, start a few indoor bulbs. Here’s how it worked for me.

Paperwhites are so satisfying — they start quickly and keep going

You can also find spring bulbs at your local garden center–hyacinths and daffodils are especially good for forcing indoors.
