It's a cool, crisp morning breeze after an early March shower. The sweet fragrance of blossoms lingering in the air. A profusion of white and brilliant yellow hues radiates an otherwise grey backdrop.
This is spring inside our home. From marigold, zinnias, cold-force daffodils and hyacinth, to paperwhites, it's always spring — any blooming time! Boxfarm is more than just for microgreens. In upcoming posts we’ll show you how to grow soil-free flowers and micro herbs year-round from the comfort of home. Here's a quick tip for growing paperwhites from late fall to spring.
Use 2-3 large paperwhite bulbs and place them on top of the perforated grow rack. Fill the grow box with large loose pebbles or stones to support the bulb before they take root. Add enough water so it touches just the bottom of the bulbs. Refill with water about once per week. In about 7-9 days the bulbs will start to sprout shoots and in 3-4 weeks they'll bloom!
