Sowing, Seeds, Planting These bulbs have been specially prepared for growing indoors. For best results, plant as soon as possible after arrival but if you do not want to plant them straight away, we recommend keeping them somewhere cool and dark (like an outdoor shed or garage) at around 8-15°C before planting. You may notice a small green shoot coming out of the bulb when you receive them, this is the first sign of growth and should not be removed. Use a loam-based compost, lightened with some grit, place the bulb with its pointy tip just below the soil surface, and fill in around it. Keep the compost moist but not dripping wet.
Care Tips After planting, store them somewhere cool, like a garage, and move them inside the house once the shoots are 4-5cm tall. Use a decorative nest of twigs as support as they grow to keep them from flopping.
Flowering Once shoots are 4-5cm tall, bring them inside the house and they will flower in about 4-6 weeks.

Highly recommended...
I have tried to grow Paperwhites for several years now with varying degrees of success - last year's Ziva were beautiful but very late, this year's Inbal are full of flower, attractively shaped and flourishing! I planted in pots and kept some outside, some in the green house and some indoors to get as long a flowering season as I could - halfway through the pots and into 5th week - I will be ordering again next year.
