I duly planted some paperwhite daffs around the time when Monty did on Gardeners World so they would be flowering around Xmas ('twas the plan...).
I now have two issues - one is that they are a bit floppy and some are falling over, the other is that they are starting to flower now, before I've even started Xmas shopping...!
Did I start too early?
Did I have them in the 'wrong' place (too much light / not enough?). They were mostly kept in the utility room which has natural light (similar to a kitchen).
Should I have planted them more deeply - the ones going 'floppy' are gently nestled into gravel with most of the bulb showing.
Advice for next year gratefully received!!
