If you don't have a nursery that sells the bulbs for about $1 each, you can order them here online.
I use the same dish every year, a square glass one that I picked up at Walmart for less than $10. Something like this will work although the sides are a bit higher than I would prefer, but you get the idea:
You need to add rocks to the vase to keep the bulbs in place. Walmart, Target, Michaels, all will have them, or a good garden store like Ivy Nursery here in Virginia.
Add the rocks, the bulbs, water, wait a few days, your bulbs will start to bloom.
Throw in a lovely gold ribbon to tie your plants when they get too tall! Love them! They are a part of my Christmas every year!
