Forcing paperwhite narcissus to bloom couldn't be easier. After planting, they will bloom in four to six weeks. Paperwhites are fun to watch and grow so fast you can almost see them sprout. It's is a great project to do with kids, and can make easy and economical holiday gifts.

To have continuous fragrant blooms throughout the winter months, plant narcissus bulbs every couple of weeks throughout fall and winter.

You can either buy your bulbs at a local nursery or get them online at Brent and Becky's Bulbs or White Flower Farm.
