Can’t wait for spring

The sun is out and the temperature will get up to 58F today.  Days are getting longer and it sure feels like spring! I really can't wait, the gardener in me can't wait to come out.

Back in December I wrote a post about forcing paperwhites and I realized I never came back and post the updates.  The paperwhites did really well but nothing really happened with the Amaryllis.  The Amaryllis just kept growing long green leaves but the flower stalk I was waiting for never came out.

Paperwhites are fool-proof and it's great if you're looking for some blooms during the winter months.  I grew the paperwhites in a tall narrow pot but I think next year I'll look for a wider and shorter pot so I can put more bulbs in it.  Paperwhites look great when planted in groups.
