HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
WHEN WE SHIP
We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

A pretty table decoration, nice container, lovely rocks. Good instrtuctions; easy to grow. But the container looks a little short of flowers, even when no more bulbs could fit.

Followed directions for planting bulbs and they
started to rot in the vase.
Took bulbs out of vase and replanted them in baskets but flowers never bloomed.
Would have loved the product if the flowers actually bloomed and grew in vase??!!
First time with Paperwhites from Newark, DE
The picture makes it look like only 2 bulbs fit and that gave me the impression that the vase isn't very large. Actually 4 bulbs fit and the diameter of the vase is 6.3" at widest (where the bulbs are) and 5.1" at the base. Though, when the bulbs bloom in 4-6 weeks and the rest of the bulbs can be safely stored for 4-6 weeks I'm not sure how they think you can get "three successive plantings" out of this kit. My math says I can get 2 plantings in this vase and I better find something else to grow the other 4 bulbs in. But the instructions also say that it takes about 3 weeks for the roots to grow, so I guess I could try starting the second set of bulbs in another container 2-3 weeks after my first set and then switch them out after the first batch blooms. But that would still require a second container & more rocks, and the roots could get damaged in the move. I'll probably just use some clear plastic junk food containers (tall and narrow like the vase) and buy more river stones from a store. Overall, the bulbs all look great and the vase took less than 5 minutes to plant so I rate this a win. Just be sure to place at least one bulb so you can see it through the glass, otherwise you won't know how high the water should go and the bulbs might rot.

I recently purchased two Paperwhite with Hurricane vases as Christmas gifts. They arrived as promised and intact. Unfortunately, about a full dozen of the bulbs did not blossom. Those bulbs that did blossom were lovely. However, for $125 (with shipping) I had expected better. Disappointed.
Paperwhites require little more than to be potted and watered to produce clusters of fragrant blooms.
How to Grow Paperwhites
