When we moved into our first apartment, our mom gave us a handful of Paperwhite bulbs. Lo and behold, black thumb be damned--they bloomed! Perhaps that's why when we stopped by The Gardener this week for our monthly browse/drool fest, we were so pleased to see Paperwhites sprinkled throughout the store.
As per usual for The Gardener, the presentation is just as fetching as what's being sold. The display of bulbs sitting on the corner table makes one wonder if the loose bulbs aren't perhaps more enchanting when piled high in a gigantic wooden bowl rather than placed in traditional pots.
However, if you prefer to plant your winter bulbs and enjoy their perfume, just choose from one of the many potted bulbs or pick up one of the gorgeous handmade ceramic pieces to pot your own.
$1 for one bulb, $10 for a dozen, and approximately $30 for potted ones.
