Here's a Hint

You may already know this.  Way back in October I planted some paper whites, these two little bulbs just sat there and the rest of them bloomed and are gone.  These seemed to have little green tips but they never grew.  I took them out and placed them in some jars..........nothing.  Then I kind of remembered to take a paring knife and stab the bottom of the bulb.  It was worth a try.  This is what happened in less than a week.

Hmmmmm---so all they needed was to be stabbed???? Maybe these two didn't bloom earlier so that you could enjoy them NOW!!!!!

Oh, how I wish I'd known this! Mine did not grow, and I finally gave up on them. I will write this tip down for next year!
Thank you, Diane, and I hope you have a great week!

I keep saying I will try to force some bulbs indoors but haven't done so yet. Wonder if I can even get bulbs here? So glad these will finally bloom. Hope your day is a good one. Tammy
