Planting Bulbs and Embellishing
Source: The Martha Stewart Show, December 2008
- Pour a layer of gravel into a glass bowl. Nestle six paperwhite bulbs into the surface of the gravel, clustered together so they are close to one another, with the pointed ends up. Add water.
- Tuck bits of moss around bulbs, allowing moss to lightly cascade over bird's nest area.
- Leave planted bulbs in a well-lit, cool spot until the shoots are 4 inches high, then move to a warm, sunny place. You should have blooms in 4 to 6 weeks, which will last for several days.
