I’m not sure if these really count as a #houseplant but I can’t have enough of them at this time of year. They were dotted around the house but I decided they looked better together. I wish you could smell them. #narcissus-paperwhite Definitely one for #smell-o-vision 💚🤍💚

Thanks Sarah, they do! And so easy to grow. They don’t even need soil 😃 @sieveheadsarah

No they aren’t hardy enough. Last year I kept them going until the leaves died back and had planned on starting them off again a month or so ago but haven’t had the chance. I am still going to try and see what they do 🤔🤞 @sieveheadsarah

If you haven’t grown #narcissus-paperwhite before and want to know how mine got on, here they are! I really would recommend them. The #scent is glorious and I really love the idea I picked up this year of planting them with twigs for support or in a very tall vase.

You were right Elaine. I’m not sure that I’m going to get a viburnum but the #cornus-sanguinea looks like it’s rooting 😳🙄😂@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Nice stems! How do you keep them standing so straight and tall? Mine are in dirt, but they are flopping over.

comment
awomanonabike

Thank you Le K 😊 They are all on window sills so are getting lots of light and I have either put them in a tall vase or stuck twigs in alongside them to try and stop them flopping over 🤞 @kaigia

Thanks Elaine. I got a bit carried away when Farmer Gracy were selling off their bulbs 🙄 This one is a money box. I like the idea of VW camper salt and pepper pots though 😃 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

I really love this idea I got from #farmergracy I’ve used twigs from #viburnum-bodnantense-dawn to provide support for the #emergingbulbs and the scent is divine 👌 #bulbs
