Update: Congrats to the winners of the ‘Winter Sun’ giveaway: Paula, comment #142; Bobbie Floyd, comment #12, and Denise in NJ, comment # 41.BECAUSE I LOVE NARCISSUS ‘WINTER SUN’ SO MUCH, and because I think you will, too, I’ve ordered three packages of the bulbs to give away. Who’d like to win this yellow-and-white, April-scented beauty that blooms indoors just 4-6 weeks after planting?
I grow ‘Winter Sun’ every year, planting some in October for Thanksgiving bloom, and others in November for Christmas and New Year’s bloom. You can plant the bulbs in soil if you wish. I plant mine in attractive bowls filled with pebbles and water. To keep the flowering stems from growing too tall, I give the bulbs a nip of gin. Yes, gin. For pictures and growing-advice, be sure to read my profile of this great plant.
For a chance to win a set of 6 ‘Winter Sun’ bulbs, just do these two simple things:
