    After thinking about it for a while, I've concluded that the confinement approach I use for my bulb forcing vase activities has to become more complex. On my winter windowsill, paper cups filled with toothpick-supported bulbs aren't going to cut it, and I need something more substantial.

    Bulb Forcing Vase

    Bulb vases are created with a thin neck to keep the bulb above the water, allowing the roots to dangle and displaying the tendrils that would otherwise be buried underneath. That makes bulb vases the ideal shape for forcing bulbs. Bulb vases come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The following is a collection of bulb vases that will sustain and accent the winter-forced blooming beauty of your plants (and can be put to work holding cut flowers for the remainder of the year).

    Visit Michelle's Forced Bulb Primer for step-by-step instructions on bringing beautiful blossoms to your home throughout the winter.
