Sometimes we hear little tips around the store, and we don't always know right off the bat whether they are based in fact. A popular one is that Narcissus, also known as Paperwhite Bulbs, will perform better if given some alcohol with their water. Pay close attention. I am not talking about you drinking alcohol until your bulbs are dancing around you like pink elephants. I am suggesting that you give your posies a little holiday nipper.
Cornell University has the research, and the correct dosage, to make your bulbs stand up straight. This information is important, because throwing a little of Uncle Joe's egg nog in with them will not achieve the same results.
Careful though. Bulbs may become a little flirty and more receptive to sexual advances. To avoid unwanted holiday shenanigans display your bulbs away from friends and relatives on the rebound.
