Talkback: How to force daffodil bulbs

I'll try this - have done hyacynths' before. Will be nice to have some early colour.


  • I'm really enjoying my paper-whites at the moment. How can I make them flower at Christmas again next year?
  • Nice suggestion may have to try this out seen as i sell plants for a living dunno why i have not tried this oit before
  • Does this only work with daffodils or can any bulb work? (sorry if this is a silly question)...:)

    Hyacinths: They have to be specially prepared bulbs. Most catalogues have them.

    Paperwhites take about 8 weeks from planting, I think.

    You can do it with lots of bulbs. Reticulata Iris, grape hyacinths, Crocus, miniature daffodils for instance.
  • Great, thanks.  I will try some of these!!  image

    Does anyone know if you keep them in the dark like hyacinths?
