George and the Paperwhites

 In Bulb growing

The Paperwhite competition resulted in one of the pots in Anderson household  being awarded a very commendable 3rd place, but it was Gill’s pot rather than George’s that was placed.   As George says:

It has been interesting watching and trying to control the growth and flowering of these bulbs this year.  The pot on the left of the photographs is the one planted on the 5th of November while the others were planted two weeks earlier.

We did neglect the pots for one full week ( they were put out into the cold greenhouse ) while we enjoyed the winter sunshine in Spain.

Perhaps if they had been able to give them our full attention a better result would have been obtained. I might have even done better than Gill!
