Prepare for your Party Season – 10 minutes of your time this week can yield weeks of fresh flowers in December!
There is one simple thing you can do that you won’t be able to do in a few weeks. Plant Amaryllis and/or Paperwhite bulbs and in 4-6 weeks you’ll be enjoying the spectacular beauty that only these fresh blooms radiate.
Pick up a few bulbs at your local nursery, home garden center, or supermarket. Follow the directions on the package and when things are crazy closer to the holidays, you’ll have your own little present tucked away and when you least expect it you’ll get a burst of holiday cheer from this small package! Tip: Plant a few extra bulbs and you’ll have hostess gifts come December.
We especially love the idea of this DIY gift this holiday season. So many lost so much in the New York Metropolitan area, but they will rebuild because of their resiliency and strength of the human spirit. May this be a symbol of rebirth.
