to do: {force bulbs}

One of my favorite things to do in the Fall & Winter is to force bulbs indoors. It's a great way to satisfy your inner gardener in the colder months, and you don't even need a drop of soil. I usually force freesias, hyacinth and paperwhites. Each variety takes between 10-14 weeks to fully bloom, but the entire process of watching the roots grow and wind inside the glass is almost as fun as the bloom itself.
