Keeping Paperwhites Indoors?
I've got 4 paperwhite bulbs...they sprouted beautifully, stayed healthy for a long time, and then the flowers dried up. I read online about what to do (cut off flower and stem but leave leaves to absorb nutrients). Everywhere I look, I see "Now plant the bulbs in your garden." I don't want to put them outside...I'd like to store them indoors and then force them to bloom this winter. Any ideas on this, or should I plant them outdoors, let them grow all summer, and then dig them up in the fall? Then I'm assuming I dry them, store them in a cool, dark place until I'm ready to plant and force. Could I keep the leaves growing in pots on the windowsill all summer? They're so pretty. Thanks!
