Every year I swear I shall plant some PaperWhite narcissi for Christmas - and every year I miss the boat. So this year, as soon as I saw the bulbs in the local GC, I bought them, and planted them.
I anticipated that they would need to be planted rather like hyacinths, and the on-line tutorial by Sarah Raven seemed to back that up. But . . . . . . .
Happy though the bulbs may be, and early though the initial growing phase may be, a couple of them seem to be lifting themselves (heaving themselves!) out of the bowl. The roots look to be strong (too strong, perhaps).
So - should I let them do their stuff regardless? Or quickly re-plant them, nose up, but with deeper root runs?
Suggestions gratefully received!
