Update: Paperwhites love vodka
Andrea Bellamy |

As an update to an earlier post that cited a study showing that small amounts of alcohol (rubbing or martini-ready) can limit the sometimes-overzealous growth of bulbs such as paperwhites, I’m here to report that it’s true!

I wasn’t forward-thinking enough to grow a control batch of bulbs so show my readers (next year I will for sure) but I’m certain that my paperwhites aren’t as tall and floppy as last year’s. In fact, the splash of vodka I added to their drink seemed to positively reinvigorate them. I guess they like a good stiff drink as much as the next person.
