Hope Springs Eternal



While I'm waiting around all day every day for something to happen, I'm watching these pots like a hawk.

In September, Indira and I filled a dozen pots with daffodil bulbs. Now green shoots are starting to poke out from the potting soil. It's very gratifying.

More on this story as it develops.

  3. Around Christmas you can force Paper White Narcissus bulbs indoors in a bowl of gravel and water. They smell wonderful, but sometimes like to grow tall enough to fall over. (Could try to stake them.)

    You can do Hyacinths that way, too. (Or in special vases that keep the bulb above water.)
