Pesky Paperwhites

Reading time 1 minute

Once again, I’ve mistimed my paperwhite narcissi. Just three weeks after planting they are in full bloom, filling every corner of the house with their intoxicating fragrance. Wise to the bulbs’ tendency to flower prematurely I planted another bowl-full last week, which I hope will show their ice-white faces on Christmas Day. To be absolutely sure I have yet more bulbs in reserve, which planted this coming weekend should be good for New Year. This time I will not be beaten!
