Paperwhite Narcissus

Number 97

Paperwhites are synonymous with the Holidays to me.
The way they light up the room, the way they twinkle with the lights, the scent…

They’re easy to grow. Any well drained shallow pot will do. Pebbles at the bottom will work. Gently cover with soil and keep moist, not wet footed. In terracotta, in antique terrines, in pretty little boxes.

You still have time! Toss them into the freezer overnight and fool them into thinking it’s spring!
