I've been purchasing paperwhites for several years now to give as holiday gifts. I've bought them from various online vendors. The first year they were wonderful. Every year since then, regardless of the vendor, the quality just hasn't been there- to the point where I questioned why I still bought them. I decided to give them one more try. Home Depot had the best deal, so that's where I bought them. They arrived quickly and are the healthiest bulbs I've had since that 1st year.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mary Very smal bulbs with corms sprouting from many (an indicator of old bulbs). Only 7 bloomed. I've forced for 40 yrs. Worst.
Very disappointing experience. Small bulbs with sprouting corms from base (old bulb indicator) on many of the bulbs. My first tray (20 bulbs forced) produced 5 measly blooms. Fifteen bulbs did not bloom at all. Similar experience with the next ten bulbs ( total of 2 more blooms). The remaining bulbs are awaiting bloom at this point. To have only gotten 7 blooms is extremely disappointing especially considering the premium price I felt I paid. I've forced paperwhites for 40 years, and never have I had such poor quality bulbs.

The price was good and they arrived quickly, but these were the smallest paperwhite bulbs I've ever seen. Potted them up anyway & leaves sprouted, but they stopped growing at about 8" tall. Then the 24 bulbs produced just five flowers. Hard to return something like this, so I decided to enjoy the few blooms and remind my self not to buy these next year.

All of my bulbs have sprouted without any unusual care. The various suggestions for moving from a cold place to a warm place, blah-blah-blah, can be safely ignored. Good narcissus bulbs are like the alien in "Alien." Once they find a host, there's no stopping them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by walker2015 worst paperwhite bulbs I have ever purchased
I usually buy bulbs on line from a nursery but this year I thought I'd order from Homedepot.com. Not only were they the smallest bulbs I have ever seen but only two out of nine bulbs bloomed. This year I noticed my local store carried them in stock - big beautiful bulbs at a better price. So much for on line!

These bulbs were beautiful! Every one bloomed and was showy and lovely to smell. I will definitely reorder this product next year! All my Christmas guests were just in awe over these. They were wonderful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Duke Performed very poorly
I ordered 2 packs totaling 48 bulbs and only 7 bulbs managed to flower, which I would consider very poorly performing bulbs.

I buy many of these in the fall and force them all winter long. They are easy to force and produce beautiful flowers and fragrance for many months when I space out my forcing over a number of weeks. . Never had a bad bulb. Keep well in refrigerator or cold garage. Extend the life of the flowers by cutting and including in a flower arrangement or alone.
