Growing Paperwhites

While I went antiquing before Christmas, one of my favorite shops had just started a bunch of Paperwhites. They had used individual bulbs singly in old silver creamer and sugar containers. Wow, I thought...I have a bunch of those old containers and could do the exact thing. I purchased 6 large bulbs at a nearby nursery. I got home and decided to use an old bucket that I had painted with white milk paint, and drilled some holes in the bottom for planting. There was just enough room to get the 6 bulbs into the bucket, and I used potting soil. I have a lovely container of blooming Paperwhites on the dining table as I type this.  And....I just planted another pot of bulbs.....for several weeks from now.
