Hi please can anyone help me
Can I have paper whites flowering in September? I am getting married in a forest and would love to have them as my flowers. If it is possible how would I go about it?
I'm doubtful as the bulbs won't have had their usual summertime rest - but the 'Queen' of forcing bulbs is Sarah Raven - you could try emailing her to see if it's possible for her to provide bulbs that can be planted ready to flower in September http://www.sarahraven.com/customer
Good luck have a wonderful wedding and a happy life
Thanks for the info and getting back to me so quickly. I will contact her now
All the best
Patricia, have you actually smelt those paperwhites, my mum, daughter and myself had to put them outside. I think some people like them, not anyone in my family though.
Hi Lyn yes I agree they can be over powering in a house but our reception is in a yurt on the edge of a forrest so I thought there fragrance would be strong enough to make an impact without being overwhelming.
Didn't realise how complicated all this is ha ha
