BUT you CAN force Paper White bulbs!
A friend gave me this little Paper White in a Mason Jar for Christmas last year. It grew really well and when it's life was over I put it in storage with the intention of planting the bulbs in my garden. It seems the Paper White had other plans! I found it with half an inch of growth two weeks ago, replanted the bulb a little lower in the soil, watered well and VOILA!
