Available again from the end of November, hyacinths are such a lovely gift to let someone know that you are thinking of them, or to say thank you. Your planter will arrive with the bulbs just bursting into life. The warmer the room the quicker the flowers will appear. Traditional blue have the strongest scent, but they are all so pretty it's hard to choose! We currently only have blue available, but more pink are coming at the end of next week.
Great product and service.
In the words of the recipient... " Thank you for a long lasting present, I just love it"
I have ordered these a number of times as gifts and for myself. They have always been lovely. This year I received the blue bulbs (first of this colour) and they are the best yet! Strong, robust bulbs which have blossomed into eight large hyacinths which look wonderful and fill the room with scent. As before, delivered on time in sturdy recyclable packaging. I needed to alter the delivery date after ordering, but all dealt with in a swift and friendly way.
My mother in law was very happy with her present

These budding hyacinths will grow and flower in the weeks after their arrival, bringing a welcome bit of cheer to a windowsill or doorstep.
Your hyacinths need plenty of light and water to flower. They are not too fussy about temperature, but the warmer it is, the more water they will need and the faster they will grow. Aim to keep the soil moist by watering regularly.
Keep turning your planter so that the hyacinths grow upright, rather than in the direction of the sunlight. In a very warm room, you may find that staking the plants helps to keep them growing straight.
When the flowers are over you can plant these Sussex grown bulbs in the garden where they will flower again next year.
These bulbs have been conditioned to grow earlier than normal, they traditionally grow outside in the spring. When they have died back, trim off the dead foliage and plant outside for best results year after year.
Problem Solving:As long as you keep the roots moist whilst they are growing hyacinths are extremely reliable. If for any reason your bulbs fail to flower please do let us know immediately.
According to Greek mythology hyacinth got its name when a young boy named Hyacinth was killed by a discus hitting him in the head during a game. A hyacinth sprang from the cut in his head as he lay in the arms of the god Apollo
