We so enjoyed watching our amaryllis and paper white bulbs grow and bloom over the holidays that we've decided to grow more. Holiday bulbs are often discounted along with the Christmas merchandise, so check with your local nursery or florist.
After some discussion with readers on previous bulb posts, I do believe that the quality of nursery and florist bulbs are well worth the trip and extra cost (although buying paper whites in a grocery store kit are actually more expensive).
Our paper whites had very minimal flopping and in fact, stood so long that the flowers dried, which was quite lovely. It allowed us to enjoy them much longer than previous years.
Happy blooms in the New Year!
