Horticulture Tip for November

nov 2

At our November meeting, Cheryl, our Horticulture Chair, demonstrated how to easily and inexpensively grow Paperwhite flowers in our own home. All you need are Paperwhite bulbs, pebbles and a container.  Place pebbles and water in a container with bulbs on top.  Place in a dark area for one week.  Roots will grow and the bulb will sprout.  Bring container to a brighter area a wait for bloom. It is not necessary to buy a special containter, you can use a canning jar, terra cotta disch, or old silver tray that you have around the house.
