Supplies

To Make

Fill your flower pot or Ball Jar with about an inch of stones.  Place your Paperwhite bulb up in the center of the pot.

Add potting soil to the rest of the flower pot under an inch or 2 from the top.

Add water to help the bulb grow.  It will take about 3 weeks for your paperwhite flowers to bloom.

I usually plant mine Thanksgiving weekend so they will be ready in time for Christmas break.   The Paperwhites will bloom for a few more weeks and add a delicious smell to your home.

    1. There is still time it only takes about 3 weeks or so for the paperwhites to bloom. Thank you so much for your sweet comments and for organizing Kim!

  1. How beautiful! I didn’t know they bloomed that fast. This is a lovely gift and I will keep in mind not only for gifts, but for decorating the house. I just love fresh flowers.
