Paperwhite Narcissi

The paperwhite narcissi planted on the 8th October are just about to flower. They were planted into crates filled with a mix of potting compost and vermiculite which nice and light. This encourages a good root system - the roots need to search for their nutrients and anchoring - and makes it easier to seperate the individual bulbs and pot them up as needed. These are still in the tunnel - which is freezing overnight. They are on a heated mat that kicks in when the temperature drops below 3 degrees.
I shall pot some up tomorrow as a birthday present for a friend and put some into the bank next week.
