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
