Welcome to Share Your Style! We are so happy you’ve joined us this evening!
Are you forcing bulbs this holiday season? It wouldn’t be Christmas at Kingsbury Brook Farm without the intoxicating smell of paperwhites and the stately sight of amaryllis flowers. I have a quick tip for you this evening to help you grow shorter paperwhites that won’t flop over.
Wait until the shoots are 1 to 2 inches above the bulbs and add alcohol to the water. Yes, you read this right! Alcohol diluted with water will stunt their growth to 1/3 shorter than normal but will not affect the size or amount of flowers. Mix 7 parts water to 1 part hard liquor (40% distilled spirit) such as gin, vodka, whiskey, rum, or tequila. Keep watering your paperwhites with this special cocktail and voilà! Shorter paperwhites that won’t flop over!
And now onto the party…
